it's been more than two decades since downtown Cleveland boasted department stores, but brothers Chas and Gordon Geiger of Geiger's are aiming to redress the central city with a Euclid Avenue shop opening Nov. 12. "There's a significant void in the downtown market," Chas says. "I'm talking about name-brand, better quality men's and ladies' clothing." We give you three reasons to take your shopping spree downtown.
Old Meets New: Located on the street level of the Ivory on Euclid, the store merges the 1911 building's architecture with modern brick walls and arches. "When you come in, it will be an experience," Chas says.
gear Up: If a polar vortex strikes again, the shop has you covered with furry Barbour hats, Dakine padded gloves and Patagonia puff jackets. "Patagonia seems to transcend different lifestyles,"Chas says, "whether you're highly active or looking for more technical features."
Something Blue: Although Geiger's hasn't carried Levi's since the '90s, it's bringing the denim back. "Many of the residents downtown are millennials," Chas says, "and [it] will be highly appealing."
