Who We Are

The Sports Locker is a family-owned and operated business specializing in team apparel, silk screening, embroidery, and banner making. Located in the town of Olean in the Enchanted Mountain Region of Western New York, The Sports Locker prides itself with timely service and quality products.

Since 1984 The Sports Locker has been serving the Southern Tier with quality products and services. Tom and Jason Palumbo began doing business out of their home beginning in 1984 and moved to their original store location at 1619 West State Street in the fall of 1984. The Sports Locker operated a retail store selling both to individual customers and groups. The retail store carried sports apparel and equipment while the institutional sales staff sold to teams, schools, and corporations predominately in New York and neighboring Pennsylvania.

The Sports Locker is actually several small businesses operating under one roof, not strictly all associated with sporting goods. The business includes a large silk screening shop featuring automatic and manual printing presses with a computerized art department. Three top of the line embroidery machines provide high-quality embroidery featuring custom designs which are digitized in house for better service to our customers.

In 1995 after consistent growth of the business and a desire to branch out into other services, the Sports Locker moved to its present location at 711 West State Street. The added space allowed us to continue to increase sales and expand by adding two more small businesses, large format digital printing, and laser engraving.

State of the art equipment has helped make The Sports Locker your one-stop for all your printing needs.
Today, The Sports Locker employs a combination of 30 full-time and part-time employees. Our employees are working hard to provide you with the best in customer service and satisfaction. From team shirts to window wraps, The Sports Locker is your source for all your print and embroidery needs.

Sports Locker has been an integral part of our program, and St. Bonaventure Athletics as a whole, since I stepped foot on campus and long before I arrived. Jason and Tom Palumbo run a first class business and both care deeply about their connection to this community and University.  There is nothing the team at Sports Locker can’t do, they are a one-stop shop for everything we need as a program. We highly value our exclusive relationship with Sports Locker!
