City Gear- The League formerly Deveroes Summer League

The League

The Deveroes Summer League has been the premier summer league in the Cincinnati area for many years. With numerous professional players returning to the Cincinnati area and joining players from major Division I College programs such as Xavier, Cincinnati, and Miami of Ohio, the league has gained traction as the place for elite players to test their games against the best competition in the region. Last Summer Deveroes was acquired by Memphis based retailer, City Gear. City Gear is proud to carry on the tradition of this great tournament under the new name, City Gear-The League. Background on City Gear and the acquisition: City Gear is a Memphis based streetwear and footwear retailer, operating 92 stores throughout the Southeast and Midwest following the Deveroes acquisition. The company is over 32 years old with a rich history of customer service throughout the region. The City Gear brand was launched in 2000 as a reaction to the changing market place, and has flourished over the last 12 years. City Gear strives to be not only the destination store in regional malls, but the customers’ neighborhood store. This familiarity helps establish a deep loyalty at an early age and has been key to our continued success. The acquisition creates a contiguous market from Columbus, Ohio, to Houston, Texas, with no overlap, offering synergies in marketing, operations, and logistics. City Gear offers a similar shoe mix to Deveroes with a broader and deeper section of clothing. They carry all the top flight brands in athletic apparel and footwear including Nike, Jordan, Adidas, and Reebok. They also carry a variety of well known, well regarded, and some exclusive streetwear brands such as TRUKFIT, The Hundreds, Pink Dolphin, LRG, AKOO, DGK, Born Fly and many more. “City Gear is poised for growth,” Mike Longo, CEO of City Gear says. “Deveroes will prove a great add-on to our existing structure, and we are pleased to gain access to key Midwestern markets. Given their proud history, excellent customer service, and superior economics, we are proud to add them to our team.” Longo has been CEO of City Gear, formerly known as Shelmar Retail Partners, since October 2006. Previously he served as Executive Vice President at AutoZone. As a graduate of West Point with an MBA from Harvard University, Longo is well equipped to steer City Gear to a leadership role during the eventual consolidation of the industry.
