About Us

Thanks for visiting our website and giving me an opportunity to tell you about Packer Gear and Cheese, the gift shop in the Green Bay and Appleton airports. I’m Jack Hill, and I’m proud to call myself the co-founder and co-owner of Packer Gear and Cheese.

I was just a college student when two partners and I opened the airport gift shop at Austin Straubel International Airport. Shortly afterward, I bought out my two partners. Since that time, my wife, Donna, and I have been serving travelers and sharing our enthusiasm for Wisconsin’s favorite teams and finest cheese.

I became a store owner in 1968, the same year the Green Bay Packers won their second Super Bowl. We’ve always had a great selection of Packers apparel and gifts at the Airport Gift Shop and have expanded to include Badgers and Milwaukee Brewers merchandise. Shop online or in person. Packer Gear and Cheese is a licensed and authorized dealer of merchandise for the NFL, MLB, and Big Ten Conference.

In 2000, we purchased the Airport Gift Shop at the Outagamie County Regional Airport, later renamed the Appleton International Airport. Our shelves are filled with the best of Titletown and America’s Dairyland, plus travel aids, snacks, and souvenirs.

Shoppers are thrilled with the wide selection and surprised by the affordable prices – at an airport store! Prices are comparable to what you’d pay at major retailers and lower than the boutique stores. The Appleton and Green Bay stores are open to the general public, and our online store offers the added convenience of shopping from anywhere.

Customer satisfaction is our No. 1 goal, and our friendly staff is always willing to help shoppers select the perfect souvenir. Take your piece of Wisconsin home with you, take it on your flight, or ask us to ship it anywhere in the U.S.

Packer Gear and Cheese offers the best quality merchandise at prices people can afford. Shop online or visit our stores in Green Bay and Appleton today.
