Susquehanna Valley Sportswear History

Harder’s was established in 1882 as a gun shop. Through the years it expanded into nearly every aspect of sports including hunting, fishing, bowling, bicycles, cameras, luggage, small electric appliances and most team sports. After a fire in 1978 and a second fire in 1980, which resulted in the complete loss of inventory and the building located on Pine Street in downtown Williamsport, Harder’s was relocated within several blocks of the old store until closing later that same year. The business was purchased by the Niklaus family and moved to its present location on Lycoming Creek Road in April of 1982, specializing mainly in retail and wholesale team sports.
