The Geiger family opened up its sporting goods store back in 1932, back when FDR first won the presidency ... when Jack Sharkey was the heavyweight champion of the world ... when Earl Averill smacked 32 homers for a Tribe team that went 87-65 and still finished 19 games back of the Yankees in the American League. Eighty-plus years later the Geiger family is still servicing Cleveland's sporting goods needs, now with locations downtown and in Chagrin Falls in addition to its flagship Lakewood store. Whether it's a new North Face jacket, a tent for camping, a new ski helmet, or any other outdoor apparel, you'll find it here. They also do rentals and trade-ins and can fix your bicycle, skiing equipment or snowboard. Mom-and-pop shops like Geiger's are what make neighborhoods and communities unique, so next time you're planning on visiting a big box sporting goods store, check out Geiger's instead.
