    Question for those who know Cincinnati

    Hi all, this is my first post here. Long time lurker, but now I have a question for anyone willing to answer. Where in Cincinnati can I go to find a good store full of Reds stuff? We are going to the games Sunday and Monday and I would love to find a place besides the stadium where I can get some apparel. Thanks for any help!

    The Reds Hall of Fame has a lot of stuff, but I imagine it's priced the same as the stadium. There used to be a Reds Dugout Shop in the the lobby of the on the hotel right across from fountain square (I think maybe it was Crowne Plaza). I'm not sure if this is still here.

    There's also Cincy Shops in Tri-County Mall. It's also a bit pricey, but not as bad as the stadium. It's also about 15 miles north of downtown.

    There may be more, but I'm not sure what they are. If you're looking for cheap, any Dick's is going to have a decent amount of Reds gear.

    Koch's sporting goods is right down town near Tower Place mall. It's got a little of everything sports wise. T-shirts, jerseys, hats, etc etc etc.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Ok, thanks to both of you. Price isnt too much of a concern, just selection. A couple years ago Cincinnati Mills was full of good stuff, but for some reason almost all the shops went out of business there?

    I second Koch's. You will be able to choose from a good selection at fair prices.

    Third Koch's. They have a good selection of stuff, including a lot of authentic jerseys, and it's downtown.

    Cincinnati Mills is pretty much a waste land these days, not much left in there.

    Yes, what happened to Cincinnati Mills? It was a must-visit for us on our trips to Cincinnati, but the last time we were there (fall 2008) it was a depressing place. Any idea what the downfall was? It seemed like a happening place not too long ago.



    Along these same lines, what is the trendy new mall to go to in Cincinnati these days? In the 80s and 90s, it seemed to be Florence, but Mall Road is starting to show its age, as well.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Kenwood and Tri County are the only ones I can think of without 30-50% of the stores empty.

    Tower Place Mall in downtown has an "I love Cincy" shop that has some Reds stuff. It's not a huge selection and may not deserve a trip by itself, but if you go to Koch's and still want something more or different, it's probably worth the short walk (just about across the street) to see what they have.

    Shouldn't you be preparing to play for the Indiana Pacers?

    Do you get my joke?

    UC's Lance Stephenson was nicknamed "Born Ready". He got drafted by the Pacers in this year's NBA draft.
