Turner’s Army Surplus
Turner's Army Surplus in Hooks, Tx is a family owned and operated business founded in 1953 by George E. Turner. In 1961 George's son, Ronnie Turner, joined in with his dad and continued serving the area with Army and other military surplus items. After George passed in 1976, Ronnie Turner and his wife Doris took over the business and continued in it's original location until 1986 when they moved to it's present location in Hooks, Texas. In 2011 their daughter Kellie Turner Caskey became part of the family business and came to work with them, and the business continues to be operated by the Turner family to this day.
