Co-owners and brothers Jim and Gary Kennedy started their ski business more than 20 years ago, then later added bikes to the mix. In addition to their extensive stock, Jim says the stores set themselves apart with their top-notch customer service, from staffers that are both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the sports. Competitive Edge offers full service and runs regular trips for customers, from local jaunts to an annual European ski trip. "We're in the business of selling fun," says Jim. "It's not a department store environment—it's more of a culture."
