About Us

Our Business
The Family Clothesline has been owned and operated by a Penn State Alum and his Penn State Alumni family since 1985. We are an officially Collegiate License Company that provides our customers with a wide selection of top quality products at an affordable price. Located at 352 East College Avenue in the heart of Happy Valley, The Family Clothesline started in the basement of where the store is currently located. Our store has greatly expanded overtime to what it is today due to the demand of our loyal customers and our ability to keep the costs low with our in-house printing. We are dedicated to giving our customers the real Penn State shopping experience in our 10,000+ square foot retail store filled with Officially Licensed PENN STATE Apparel and Merchandise.

Our Internet Business, located above our retail store, was established in the early 1990's and was the first website to sell retail clothing in the state of Pennsylvania. PennStateClothes.com was established to provide our die hard Penn State customers with the opportunity to purchase from our wide selection of Penn State merchandise from anywhere in the World! We strive to satisfy every customer's shopping experience and ship out all orders within a 24 hour period during weekdays.

Our Guarantee
We strive to meet every customer's full satisfaction with their purchase and if you are not pleased with your experience, you may return your Penn State merchandise for a full refund or store credit.
