In 1915, University of Michigan alumnus George J. Moe quit his job with the Michigan athletic department to pursue his dream of opening a shop devoted to quality apparel and athletic equipment. The Moe Sport Shop became one of Ann Arbor’s most beloved institutions. Did you know that team logo wear began at Moe's? And that Moe's invented the Official's striped jersey we all like to boo on football Saturdays?

100 years later, the tradition continues at 711 N. University. AADL sat down with current owners Ryan Gregg and Rishi Narayan and former owner Bud Van de Wege Jr. to explore the history of the Moe Sport Shop, the changes to the store over the years and how the shop remains a vibrant presence in the 21st century.
