Well, now your old sports equipment may have a new life. Play It Again Sports, which specializes in used sporting equipment, is opening in the Desoto Junction Shopping Center, behind Chili's Restaurant, at 3611 1st Street East in Bradenton.
The store is locally owned and operated by Jim Tucker, who left a 20-plus year career as an executive in financing to finally pursue his dreams of business ownership.
Tucker has been purchasing merchandise from the local community over the past few weeks. He is still looking to purchase hockey and lacrosse gear, which are hot items this year, from members of the community.
Once the unique resale store officially opens, customers can buy and sell gently-used sports and fitness equipment—including hockey gear, football equipment, baseball gloves and bats, golf clubs, soccer, lacrosse equipment, skateboards, surf boards, wake boards, tennis gear, disc golf, inline skates, motorized treadmills, elliptical and bikes, benches and weights, and more.
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.
