Shopping in Upper Arlington

roll: was founded on a very simple idea. Riding a bike is fun, exciting, inspiring, and even life changing. Shopping for a bike isn’t. We were left asking, how could something that inspires so much passion and enjoyment, be so complicated, confusing and difficult. We just didn’t get it. So we did something about it!

Big things can grow from small beginnings. Just ask Zoe, the cartoon (and real) canine mascot of The Laptop Guy. The computer-repair shop began with a rented counter in a toy shop, where the company's founder and his dog sold laptops to passersby. His dedication to his customers and Zoe's playful nature brought in more and more customers, until the repair and sales shop could no longer fit next to the action-figure aisle. More than 10 years later, The Laptop Guy has grown into a multi-store business that solves customers' smartphone, Apple, Android, and PC issues with online support, in-house repairs, or onsite troubleshooting. Cartoon Zoe and her owner still greet customers on the company's website, and the real-life versions can be found in one of the repair shops on any given day.

Since Tennis ltd's inception in 1982, when someone named Maria Sharapova was still fiction, the stone-accented two-story house has purveyed rackets, sunglasses, and sports apparel. It stocks these on-the-court essentials in high-quality brands such as Nike, Maui Jim, and Wilson. The store's knowledgeable staff is nearby to answer queries or expertly repair rackets, and the demo program invites players to test out rackets for a few days, looking for ones that match their swing and love of long walks on a tennis court.
