A sports store’s customer base is a good indicator of business potential. While the typical customer is an avid amateur, avid competitor, or a novice, a store’s success may be based on the number of people playing sports in the area. Customers can also look for gifts and/or buy sports fashion, known as athleisure. Other customers of sports shops can be trade and wholesalers.
Located in a ski village, the sports shop originally served as an alternative to the gift shop. In later years, it was rebuilt into a sports-themed shop. The store sold equipment for various sports and was also the entrance to the PSA headquarters. A lot of sports equipment was sold there, and many of them were used in games. During the Penguin Games, the sports store had red and white decorations. For Halloween Party in 2008, pumpkin lanterns hung from the ceiling.
