Successful Play It Again Sports Franchise for Sale at a GREAT price!

Play it again sportsPlay It Again Sports, Shorewood has been in the area for over 12 years with the current franchisee in place for the last 10. The customer base is very well established and loyal. Excellent customer service and a knowledgeable staff has made Play It Again Sports the "go to" store to buy and sell gear and equipment. This location is very strong in the baseball/softball category as well as hockey and fitness sales. However, there's still plenty of room for growth in these and other categories including schools, teams, league and association sales. Will County has experienced explosive population growth last decade. It's a young, active community with a median household income of $75k and an average age 35. There's an abundance of grade and middle schools in the Joliet / Plainfield area so the youth target market continues to expand. This is a sports friendly community with well-run park districts. All represent excellent growth opportunities for Play It Again Sports Shorewood!

Reason for Selling: Franchisee lives too far away from the location and he’s unable to dedicate time to the business due to family health issues.

About Play It Again Sports

Play It Again Sports is a unique retail concept owned by Winmark Corporation, a pioneer in retail resale franchising. Play It Again Sports was founded in 1983 with the first franchises awarded in 1988. The brand is now nearly 300 stores strong making it the largest new and used sporting goods retailer in North America and a major force in the sporting goods retail industry. This provides our franchise partners the buying power, vendor leverage and competitive pricing that only big box retailers typically enjoy. 


The Play It Again Sports model is built around our process of buying, selling and trading quality used and new sports gear and fitness equipment. How big is the industry? Annual sales of sporting goods equipment, fitness equipment and sporting goods footwear reached almost $65 billion in 2015! With new equipment representing over 60% of the sales in our stores, we’re a major player in the new sports gear industry. However, our franchisees have an advantage – they can buy the inventory back from their customers paying them on the spot for their gear, and then sell it at a great margin and recycle it back into the community.
At Play It Again Sports, everybody plays – including our franchisees! It’s what they’ve been doing their entire lives. Whether it’s supporting their kids from youth sports to college athletics or playing in their own golf, soccer, baseball or softball league, the common denominator of our typical franchisee is they still love to play and participate in sports in their community.

A Play It Again Sports franchise is the perfect business model for those who want to build a business doing what they love. Where can you spend your day talking about sports, provide a valued service to the community and build a business all at the same time? Right here, at Play It Again Sports – the official sponsor of all those who play!
