Tigertree opened in March 2007 in a small alley in the Short North District of Columbus, Ohio. Owners Josh and Niki Quinn had only intended to spend six months in Columbus on their way from their old home of Los Angeles to the East Coast. After falling in love with the city (and the Short North in particular), they decided to stay in a community they felt they could have a bigger impact. After only one year in the alley, they were ready to expand to the more visible location in which Tigertree now resides.
Originally designed to work around the couple’s own line, Maxine Dear, Tigertree quickly developed a personality of its own. Established brands like Fred Perry and Ben Sherman dovetail with up-and-coming lines such as Dear Creatures and Plastic Island. Tigertree also provides one of the city’s more interesting mix of gift and accessory items.
An informed staff (which almost always includes Josh and Niki) is always there to share stories and information about the lines carried in the store and to help you pick out the perfect outfit or gift.
