The Erie Sport Store was founded by brothers Jack and George Weber in 1951 on Ground Hog Day. Even in the early days the store catered to athletes and outdoorsmen. Not long after the store opened, it moved to a larger location. In 1970, the Erie Sport Store opened a new “super sports store” in downtown Erie, PA at 701 State Street. At the time, this was regarded as one of the finest sporting goods stores in the entire United States and during the 1970’s the Erie Sport Store won numerous National Awards in the sporting goods industry.
The Erie Sport Store continued to grow and expanded to various locations throughout the city. In the late 80’s and early 90’s, the Erie Sport Store had 4 locations; downtown at 701 State Street, Liberty Plaza shopping center, West 8th Street across from the Colony Plaza and a Golf Pro Shop on East 8th Street across from the Civic Center. Today, the Erie Sport Store has a 30,000 square foot store located in the heart of Erie’s main shopping district, upper Peach Street. The brand new location features a full-line of sporting goods including golf, snowboard, ski, firearms, fishing, camping, hockey, footwear, lacrosse, football, baseball, softball, volleyball, soccer, indoor and outdoor games, licensed clothing and much more. Most all departments specialize in expert service such as skate sharpening, ski and snowboard service, ball glove repair and steaming, archery and firearms services and more.
In addition to the retail business; Erie Sport Store is the leading “Team Dealer” in the surrounding area. The store services many of the local grade schools, High Schools, college and even professional teams. Uniforms, equipment and awards have been supplied over the years. They have an Institutional Sales division that covers a 3 state area. The store boasts a state-of-the art sewing, embroidery and trophy department.
The company remains a family business that today is owned by brothers Jack (Jason) and Rich Weber. With over 60 years in business the goals remain clear and focused…continuing to “Feature the Greatest Names in Sporting Goods” a rock solid sponsor of youth athletic teams and featuring outstanding quality and customer service.
The Erie Sport Store Advantage:
For over 60 years, Erie Sport Store has provided top quality products and service for the area’s sporting goods needs. Many times we are asked: “How do you compete with the big box stores”? It’s simple… the Erie Sport Store Advantage…
First, we have a staff of over 60 “locals” that understand the market, have a vast knowledge of products and give our customers the best service. In addition, we have hands on buyers that actually buy direct from the manufacturer. Each department boasts several staff members that are experts in their area of sports. Second, we belong to the largest sporting goods buying network in the world. Our syndicate has several hundred members with thousands of storefronts that do billions of dollars in sales annually. Third, our reaction time is swift. Due to our localized nature we can react much quicker to trends and “hot” items that may be unique to our region. At any time, our buyers can pick up the phone and have orders delivered in a matter of days; whereas, our competitors may have to go through many corporate obstacles to get the job done.
Also, we give back to our community. We have probably sponsored more youth sport teams in our area than any other establishment. We support those who support us. So, the next time you need sporting goods, remember the Erie Sport Store Advantage.
Rare Old Canoe Welcomes Our Outdoorsmen:
What we have here appears to be a nailed Wabinaki Tchiman (Algonquin) made out of one sheet of birch bark....this particular style is a hybrid of the old Eastern Algonquin.... It was built somewhere out East, possibly even in Canada....maybe even at Maniwaki, Quebec...an old canoe building center where Native builders made many canoes for sale for sportsmen 50 or more years ago...there is no doubt that most of the wood is white cedar....planking is over lapping...the stempiece may be plank-on-edge rather than split-laminations and is attached with split root.
