Appalachian Outfitters is your Premier Outdoor Specialty Store located in Peninsula Ohio.

Appalachian Outfitters is a family-owned business started by Bob Collins which opened May 1, 1988, in a small Canton strip mall.

Our little Canton shop doubled in size and in 1999, we opened our Peninsula store and rock gym, considered one of the premiere outdoor retail facilities in the U.S. In 2006, upon deciding to retire, Bob sold the business to Mike and Karen Leffler.
