Our Story


Army Universe® and ARMYU® is a online army navy store featuring tactical, military, camouflage, camping and outdoor products established in 2008. Our original retail store was founded as Main Army & Navy in 1951 in New York City selling original military surplus and army uniforms. The store was renamed in the 1980's to Galaxy Army Navy™ and the brand name has been in use ever since. Our humble beginnings started in Flushing New York, U.S.A. in a small 400 square foot store. Today, we are a multi-generational family operated company who cherishes our roots and continues to focus in our niche market. 

Army Universe® originally started as just an army navy store offering military surplus and work clothing, we now retail and wholesale a wide-range products in the army navy, military, tactical, camouflage, uniform, law enforcement, police, security, public safety, camping and outdoor fields, paintball and airsoft sports. We build strong partnerships with manufacturers and suppliers to bring you reliable products and the best customer experience.
