Topsports, currently celebrating 30 years in business, joined STAG after investigating all the benefits offered by the buying group. It has five retail outlets in the Oxfordshire region (Abingdon, Kidlington, Thame, Wantage and Witney) and focuses on being a general sports retailer to the local community.
Owner Steve Handscome puts his success and the longevity of the business down to first-class customer service. “Friendly, knowledgeable staff that give great customer service is a major factor in the outlets, coupled with an in-stock service for an ever-increasing product offering, as over the years we have diversified into many new categories,” says Handscome.
“Apart from our excellent product offering, we also offer a stringing and engraving service amongst other add-on services that we specialise in.”
Meanwhile, six other retail members have joined STAG recently. They are Fit 2 Run (Abingdon), MC Sports (Falmouth), Hoppy’s (Plymouth), Roksport (Amanford), Sea Haven (Dartmouth) and YC Sports (Cardiff).
Fifteen STAG members also attended a meeting run in conjunction with Asics at Cannons Health Club, Newbury Race Course. As well as a presentation of the latest Asics range, many other subjects were discussed relevant to today’s market place.
