LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Gearhead Outfitters is a family owned and operated business that specializes in outdoor lifestyle clothing and footwear. The Arkansas based retailer features brands such as The North Face, Patagonia, and Merrell. Founder, Ted Herget, started the business in a friend’s living room in Jonesboro, AR in 1997. It soon moved into a 700 sq. ft. store where it thrived for five years before moving into a downtown location on Main Street in 2003. As an anchor store for the revitalization of downtown Jonesboro, the store helped bring new life to the historic location. In 2006, Gearhead opened its second location in Jonesboro’s Mall at Turtle Creek. In 2011, the company branched out to central AR with the opening of a location in the Park Plaza Mall in Little Rock. Gearhead also owns and operates Northeast Arkansas’s largest full service bike shop, Gearhead Cycle House. The Cycle House is Arkansas’ only Shimano service center and has the only Specialized Master BG Fit Technician in the region. Gearhead has now expanded out of its home state of Arkansas for the first time, with a location in Shreveport, LA in the Mall St. Vincent. Today, Gearhead Outfitters owns and operates four stores in Arkansas and one in Louisiana. Gearhead’s headquarters are located in Jonesboro, AR, approximately 60 miles northwest of Memphis, TN, and the company currently employs nearly 30 people in Jonesboro, Little Rock, and Shreveport.
