Ira and Lynn Wachtel (son-in-law and daughter) own and operate the store, maintaining the friendly, family-style service and value oriented atmosphere that began in 1947.

"We changed our focus during the late 1970s and early 1980s and became more of a rugged outdoors and backpacking store," said Ira Wachtel, co-owner with his wife Lynn of the business at 303 South Neil in Champaign, Illinois.
"Other army/navy stores have gone into camping, but few have done so as broadly and into the high-end side of it as we have," Wachtel explains.
Champaign Surplus was founded by Lynn Wachtel's parents, Leo and Anne Weisel, who sold standard army/navy surplus with a smattering of work clothing.
It really became a wonderful business," Wachtel said.
An extra advantage that the store enjoyed, and still does, is its proximity to the 40,000-student Champaign-Urbana campus of the University of Illinois. It was on campus that Ira and Lynn met in 1969 when both were students.
After graduation and some years of graduate school, Ira and Lynn returned to Champaign in 1975, and Ira began working for his in-laws full-time.
