Sports can get expensive; we get it. That’s why in addition to our extensive selection of new equipment, we also take used equipment for trade. Bring in your quality used gear and get credit for it in our store. It’s then available for someone else who can use it… it’s a win-win situation!
We buy a wide variety of quality used team sports and outdoor sports gear. If a sport is played in our community and we have room for it, we buy it. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept every piece of used equipment that is brought into our store. We base our buying and our prices on brand, condition and demand for the items. Typically we will resell our used items for about 40-60% of what they would sell for new today. You would receive 30-50% of that amount depending on demand, condition and current inventory levels of like products. We accept trade-ins for store credit only at this time. You will receive payment on a Hometown Sports gift card that can be used toward any new and/or used gear in our store.
Trade-in processing times depend on how much and what type of product you bring in to sell. Most small buys can be processed in 10-15 minutes. It will take a little longer if you bring in a large quantity of items. Most items are accepted for trade at any time during regular business hours. Items of high value, or that are very unique and/or specialized can only be accepted by store management. Should you come in to trade such items when management is not on duty, our associates will assist you in scheduling a time to have your item(s) evaluated by management.
We buy gear for all sports all year long if we have room. However, items that are brought in during or in the two months before their respective season are more valuable to us and you will receive the best price for them during that timeframe.
We have both new and used product in our inventory. We buy used product to help fill in the gaps where we don’t stock enough new equipment, as well as to satisfy the customers who would prefer quality equipment at a lower price. We purchase our new gear from the same vendors as our competitors so that we can offer you the same competitive pricing on new product as the big box locations; yet we are able to give you the individual attention that you expect from a locally owned business. We are always looking for more used sports gear so please bring your gear in today so we can make you an offer!
All of our used product is sold in “as is” condition. We rely on our strict buying criteria to ensure that the product we buy is safe and current by today’s standards. We also base our buying decisions on current industry trends and league standards.
We do purchase used athletic footwear and select sports apparel items. Examples of footwear and apparel that we may purchase include: cleats, track spikes, wrestling shoes, basketball shoes, tap shoes, ballet shoes, wrestling singlets, and dance/gymnastics leotards.
