Continuing sports modernization has resulted in a surplus of perfectly good used equipment, as well as annoying mid-game cleat-software updates that require players to manually restart. Return to simpler sporting days with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of new and gently used sporting goods at Play It Again Sports. This Groupon is good at the Huron Street location.
For more than 18 years, Play It Again Sports in the London area has bedecked kids and adults with high-end, wallet-friendly athletic armour so that they can kick, swing, punt, and take exception to referee calls with gusto. New and used inventory arrives every day, and the friendly staff can lead quality-seeking shoppers to the top brands lining the spacious storefront shelves, including Bauer, CCM, Nike, Adidas, Combat, Reebok, and more. Prices vary by item, but buyers of today's Groupon have enough credit to purchase many different athletic accoutrements. Customers can get started on a collection of Under Armour workout accessories and York dumbbells ($1.49 per pound) so that they're prepared to play any sport that appears to them in dreams. Alternatively, ice fans can outfit themselves with used skates (figure or hockey), Vapor X:20 hockey gloves ($49.99), and Sherwood T-50 hockey bag ($49.95), and divot devotees can load up on golf balls. Due to rapid growth patterns and rampant milk abuse, modern kids can grow out of their pads and kickers virtually at will, so customers are encouraged to bring in old or outgrown sports equipment, as well.
Play It Again Sports
Since 1989, Play It Again Sports has been keeping sports green, recycling gently used athletic equipment into new-to-you gear. Products from brands such as Nike, Adidas, and Wilson make up each store's enormous selection of new and recycled gear, which is replenished daily with goods for a wide selection of sports that ranges from baseball and football to snowboarding, skis, and ice skates. Treadmills and exercise bikes equip bodies with muscular suits of armour, and pint-sized and adolescent equipment arms youngsters with protective padding until they eat enough bologna to grow muscles of their own. Knowledgeable staffers man each location, ready to answer questions, arrange gear deliveries or pickups, and even sharpen skates or wax snowboards. To ensure their stock remains robust, they also encourage athletes to collect their lightly used gear—including bicycles—and bring it into a local store to either sell or trade.
