Wilson Sporting Goods has opened its newest location at 1517 Third Avenue at 86th Street.
“Following in the steps of its SoHo flagship, the uptown location is focused on the brand’s continued commitment to sport, highlighting an expansive product offering across sport categories,” reads a company press release.
The new store is over 8,000 square feet and features a multi-use court on the lower level where visitors can test out the brand’s latest equipment apparel and accessories.
The Upper East Side store features Wilson’s first-ever “Equipment Room,” where shoppers can rent select products to test out before purchasing. Rental fees range from $5- $10 per day based on the product, and all rental fees will be taken off the final price if purchased, the company says.
“The new store will offer a curated assortment of best-in-class equipment across a variety of sport categories including the official basketballs of the NBA and WNBA, the Duke – the official ball of the NFL, A2000 gloves, leading tennis rackets like the Pro Staff and Clash, D9 Irons and more. The store will also house Wilson’s athletic-lifestyle sportswear collection, available for both men and women. In-store services such as a full-time racket stringing maestro, ball glove personalization, club fittings and a golf simulator will also be available for consumers to enjoy. Regular store hours are 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Sunday.”
