The owners of Play It Again Sports have sold the store’s building in front of Lowe’s on Franklin Road to Fleet Feet Sports.
Fleet Feet Sports bought the building for $1.3 million, according to a statement from Waldvogel, which represented the fitness footwear and apparel business in the sale.
Play It Again will vacate the building in late March and reopen in a larger space at Madison Square on Electric Road, next to Plato’s Closet, in April. (Madison Square is also where Texas Steakhouse and Direct Buy were located before they closed.)
Fleet Feet Sports plans to move from its current location at Townside Festival Shopping Center to the new building in July, said Robin Lewis, who with her husband, Blaine Lewis, owns the business.
