About Us

ChicagaoFireAndCopShop.com is the internet branch of G & L Trophies and Gifts, a store on the southwest side of Chicago, owned and operated by Gene Furmanek, a retired Alsip fire fighter, Lois Furmanek, a retired school secretary, and son Tim, a police commander. The Furmanek family has been active in service to their community since 1970, when Gene first joined the fire department as a volunteer. Opening a store that served first responders seemed like a natural thing to do. Meeting the fire fighters and police officers who come in from around the country, and even from other countries, has been a thrill. The brotherhood of service is the same everywhere.

G & L carries a big line of gifts for fire and police including T-shirts, sweatshirts, and hats from Chicago fire houses. Jewelry, custom made for your department, plaques and awards are custom made to your specifications. We have many different options for promotions, graduations, and retirements. We have a vast collection of Road Champs and Code-3 – some impossible to find elsewhere.

If there is anything you need, or have a question about, call Gene or Tim at the store at 708-425-2884. If you are in the Chicago land area, please stop in for a visit at G & L, 4038 W. 111th Street, Oak Lawn, IL. The coffee pot is always on. Call us for directions
