Sports and Fitness Equipment Resale Store Brought to Charleston by Local Entrepreneurs
Local families now have a place that not only puts cash back into their pockets, but sells gently-used sports and fitness equipment for less.
A favorite with families, the new Play It Again Sports® in Charleston celebrated it's grand opening on Thursday, April 13 at 630 Skylark Drive, Suite M. The unique resale store buys and sells gently-used sports and fitness equipment—including football equipment, baseball gloves and bats, hockey gear, golf clubs, soccer, lacrosse equipment, motorized treadmills, elliptical and bikes, benches and weights, and more.
“I’m thrilled to open my business in such a warm, welcoming, sports-oriented community like Charleston,” said Billy Richardson who co-owns the new Play It Again Sports store with brother-in-law Seth Cason. “I’m sure everyone will love the breadth of new and used merchandise we provide. Parents love Play It Again Sports because they can trade-in their quality, used equipment for cash or even trade-up for new gear—saving them both time and money.”
Both owners graduated from the College of Charleston and have resided in the area for 15 years. The duo also owns the Play It Again Sports in Mount Pleasant. When their customers were driving the distance to their store and voicing how much the Charleston area would benefit from a closer location, the brother-in-law team knew they had to fill the void.
Unlike a typical consignment store, no appointment is necessary to sell sports and fitness equipment to Play It Again Sports. Plus, the store pays consumers on the spot for goods it purchases from them.
The Charleston Play It Again Sports is open from 10-8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Saturday 10-7 p.m. and Sunday 11-5 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.playitagainsports.com/charleston.
