    Buckeye Spirit

    April 2012
    The Logan County Area Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize Buckeye Spirit as April's Chamber Business of the Month.

    Arlene Fedderson opened Buckeye Spirit on October 1, 2008, just in time for the Buckeye Football season. She chose Downtown Bellefontaine as her location because of the local demographics, with the ability to support an Ohio State fan shop, and because of the caliber and product mix of the surrounding retailers in the immediate area.

    When talking to her about her store she states, "We carry only Ohio State product. We try to source out products that cannot be found in big box stores." They also strive to carry lesser known apparel lines such as College Couture, For the Glory, and the Cotton Exchange. They are constantly receiving compliments on the uniqueness of the apparel they carry and the wide variety of home decor, garden accents, and car accessories that are seldom found in the campus and Columbus area retailers.

    Arlene and Buckeye Spirit has had a wonderful impact on Downtown Bellefontaine generating excitement on those OSU game days. She uses her unique marketing styles to bring business to her store. From signs directing people to her store to people dressed up in OSU garb on the sidewalks, she is always promoting her unique merchandise.

    Buckeye Spirit is one of the locally owned businesses in Logan County that make our community a great place to live, work and shop!

    Thank you Arlene for your continued support of our local community.
