Competition:There are competitors in the Snow Sports and Team Sports industry. In the Snow Sports, there are some that are over 50 miles away, so they are not real competition or they are too niche. In the Team Sports, there are some competitors, but they don't offer the extensive services. Due to the location of the facilities, they are the prime go to location in their regions served.
Growth Potential:Customers vary from kids, adults, sports teams, athletic enthusiasts, vacationers, etc. While winter months are their strongest season, they still have strong sales in the summer months due to the centrally located position to many vacation areas. There is competition in the market, but when it comes to snowboarding, skateboarding, wakeboarding, and outdoor apparel they are the top of the selection. Their reputation for service and product offerings is well known. They are highly respected by their vendors and the retail community. You are basically getting 5 businesses under 1 roof: Retail, Trophy & Awards, Screen Printing and Embroidery, Team Sales and Rental. Growth can be obtained by increasing marketing and expanding more beyond a board shop to other sporting areas like biking, kayaking and other outdoor sports. Expansion into other colleges, high schools and teams for uniforms and equipment could boost sales revenues even higher. Hiring additional outside salespeople to service the surrounding large geographic area is possible.
