The History of our Shop:
Who are we? We are outdoor enthusiasts who, like you, love the outdoors and the gear we use. We enjoy what we do and the environment in which we do it.

Outdoor Source owner Andy Graham worked for a large specialty outdoor store in Columbus, The Benchmark, prior to its closing in 2003. Embracing the outdoor lifestyle, Andy decided to open his own outdoor shop and continue the tradition of quality gear and knowledge of the outdoors in Columbus. Andy, with the help of Ryan Hamler and other former Benchmark employees opened Outdoor Source in the fall of 2003.

Andy's goal is to provide the Central Ohio area with the best selection of outdoor brand names and the highest quality gear available. Education over salesmanship is his philosophy. With a strong passion for the outdoors and friendly, knowledgeable staff, Outdoor Source has quickly become the benchmark for outdoor speciality stores in Ohio. With the help of our customers, Outdoor Source will continue to grow and begin new adventures. is here to expand this vision to a broader range of people who share our same enthusiasm.
