Griswold Sporting Goods opened on Griswold in Detroit in 1935. It was once owned by Joe Trenkle. There were several stores around the Detroit later including Pontiac and Warren. The chain went under in 1983 from what I could find. My neighbor worked as a buyer for the chain when it was in its heyday. He did very well.
