Play It Again Sports to close

Nov. 6, 2019

Play It Again Sports is closing after more than two decades in business.

The store, which sells both new and used sporting goods, opened in 1992. It’s located at 3534 S. Western Ave.

Play It Again Sports is a national chain that was franchised locally by Dave Rust. It’s possible the company could name a new franchisee for the market, he said, although he tried selling the business without any luck.

“I had quite a few inquiries, and a few people took it a ways down the line, and for various reasons it didn’t work out,” he said, adding the decision to close was difficult because he knows the store brings value to many in the community, especially parents.

A closing date hasn’t been set, but all merchandise is discounted between 10 percent and 30 percent for now.

The store will continue to trade for some in-season merchandise, Rust said.
