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 a year in the alley, they were ready to expand to a more visible location on High Street, followed two years later by another expansion into the space 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 Ben Sherman and Levi's dovetail with up-and-coming lines such as Dear Creatures and Native Youth. Tigertree also provides one of the city’s more interesting mix of gift, home, vintage and accessory items.
An informed staff 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.
