Geri's Hamburgers T-shirt
Geri’s Hamburgers was a Rockford-based fast food chain with more than a dozen stores across northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin at its peak, including at least six in the Rockford area and two in Madison. Geri’s was similar in style to the early McDonald’s restaurants. They had little or no inside seating and were geared towards fast take-out service. First opening in 1962, there were at least 13 Geri's locations by 1980. In 1981, the Geri’s corporation folded, but several stores continued to operate independently. The last Geri’s was in Beloit, Wisconsin and closed in 1999.

The only thing that would make this t-shirt 5 stars is if it were offered in a heavier fabric t-shirt. The design is 5 stars. the shirt itself, 3 stars. PLEASE offer this, and ALL your designs, in sweatshirts.

Geri's in Beloit, WI closed in 1995 due to a road construction that affected the business very badly. I was the last independent owner at that time.
Bought it in 1992 until I closed it down.

We purchased this shirt for my father-in-law. He was very excited to receive it. He said it seemed like great quality and is a fun shirt. He even got comments when he wore it out and about. I had made a mistake when ordering and the customer service was great. Thanks for a fun product!
Great print, brings back memories

It's a good quality shirt for the price. The print looks great, good quality as well. I wish they would tell you the fit though, I like fitted shirts and the large fits bigger than larges I normally buy. I like the shirt, just wish I had a medium.
Great shirt, great memories!

As soon as I saw this shirt, I had to order one for my brother and one for me right away. Who doesn't love that little hamburger dude? Print quality is fantastic, shirt quality is excellent, fit is great, and the piece de resistance was the Bygone tag made from a pog. Can't wait to go back to Beloit to show it off and make everyone wonder where I got it.

I like the image very much, nice solid printing, but I think the shirt runs small, maybe should've ordered an XXL, or if you offered a XL tall.
Great Nostalgia For Southern Wisconsin Boomers

This Geri's shirt got immediate cheers from those who grew up in Janesville or Beloit.
EXCELLENT Customer Service

I ordered my Geri's T-Shirt Saturday afternoon and it was waiting for me in todays mail. You can't beat service like that anywhere! Wish Geri's was still around ... I liked it better than the Golden Arches. The one in Freeport closed in 1974.
My sister wanted it off my back!

I had to come to the website to order a Geri's t-shirt for my sister. I wore mine while on a family trip to Canada and my sister told me to give it to her! As soon as I returned I ordered it. Everyone who sees it wants one too so I posted the purchase on Facebook. It looks completely authentic and since it's seen a couple of washings I can say it is made of sturdy material. Thanks, Keith!

I loved the shirt, brought back childhood memories. I would of liked Rockford, IL somewhere on the shirt: small print on a sleeve maybe.
