A popular Med City sporting goods store will soon pack up its ice skates, lacrosse sticks, golf clubs, paintball gear and more to head north on Broadway to the Crossroads Shopping Center.
Sports Headquarters is preparing to move to an 8,500-square-foot space in Suite 20 in the Crossroads Shopping Center at 1201 Broadway S., said Manager Alec Waite. It will be next to Iron Physique Gym.
Waite, along with owner Ron vonBrethorst, hope to make the move in late July and be in the new space in early August.
“We’re looking to be more noticed, and we were looking for a bigger space... The new store is wide open, with a large showroom,” said Waite. “Sales are booming.”
Sports Headquarters sells a wide variety of new and used equipment for hockey, golf, softball, lacrosse, disc golf and more. It also offers services such as skate sharpening.
The store has a team of six on staff, including vonBrethorst. Waite said it is possible that number might need to grow a bit in the new space.
