The Hocking Hills Adventure Trek team is as diverse as the wilderness they explore. Guides include living history performers who educate visitors through songs and stories and naturalists who lead outdoor adventures through the wilderness. While the performers showcase their talents at an outdoor amphitheater, guides lead visitors on year-round nature hikes through little-seen areas of the Hocking State Forest and state nature preserves. The company also leads guided rock-climbing and rappelling trips and guided fishing trips at AEP Recreation lands.

It might be hard to believe considering its vast array of products, but Sears, Roebuck and Co. began with one accessory: watches. In 1886, Richard W. Sears bought a box of unwanted watches from a jeweler, thinking he could turn a profit by selling them. He was correct and committed to the watch business by hiring Alvah C. Roebuck, an experienced watchmaker.

As time went on, though, their business expanded its umbrella far beyond what people wore on their wrists. Sears became known as the place to shop for almost any appliance, from sewing machines to those magical boxes that create water from nothing and clean your clothes.

Today, the stores stock clothing, accessories, electronics, kitchen equipment, tools for outdoor living, and home decor. This variety is sustained by Sears's proprietary brands—Kenmore, Craftsman, and DieHard, to name a few—and other national names that populate the shelves.

Indian Lake Outfitters is the brainchild of outdoors enthusiast Bryan—known as “the buyer” to his staff—and business expert Brenda—who’s known as “the brains”. But the husband and wife team acknowledge that, as long as their daughter Bostyn— “the boss”—is around, they’ll never really be in charge. Together, they maintain a climate-controlled, indoor archery range and stock the shelves of their store with outdoor electronics, clothing, and gear to fulfill customers’ hunting, fishing, camping, and boating needs. Posters line the walls of the archery range, where customers pull back bowstrings and sling arrows at targets, or attempt to shoot metaphorical arrows of love at their dates. Every third Thursday, Indian Lake Outfitters hosts an archery night for women.
