Glenn's Sporting Goods Moving to New Location

HUNTINGTON -- Come January, Glenn's Sporting Goods will be opening inside the building that houses Mack and Dave's.
Mack and Dave's will remain open at 1010 3rd Ave., while Glenn's will renovate and occupy about one-third (10,000 square feet) of its first floor retail space. Glenn's also will occupy the building's basement, for a total of 40,000 square feet, said Glenn's President Jim Brumfield.
He said the move allows Glenn's to consolidate operations that now go on in three different locations: the current spot of its retail store, 1051 4th Ave., as well as warehouse space on 11th Street, and a portion of the Mack and Dave's basement where Glenn's has already been doing business for 10 years.
Along with its retail sporting goods store, Glenn's also has successful wholesale operations in selling clothing and equipment to athletic teams, and a sizable wholesale operation supplying items to federal prisons, Brumfield said.
Those operations are strong, and increased space is needed, he said.
Renovating 40,000 square feet is a big investment, but it will be well worth it for the longtime Huntington business, which employs 40 people, Brumfield said.
"This allows us to consolidate our entire operation," Brumfield said. "We could have easily moved our wholesale division out of city limits, but we are committed to downtown Huntington, having been here for 44 years.
"We are excited that Davey Cohen of Mack and Dave's offered to share his space with us, so it works out well for us. We wanted to update our store, and this will be a nice big, fresh area for us. ... It's going to be state-of-the-art everything and will allow Glenn's to be prepared for the future."
Glenn's lettering department can now expand, he said, and there will be two large trucking bays for the wholesale operations.
"This will make our operation much smoother," Brumfield said.
On the first floor, Glenn's will occupy the eastern portion of the building, he said.
There will be separate entrances for Glenn's and Mack and Dave's and a common door inside, where patrons can pass from one business to the other.
Remodeling has started this week, but Glenn's won't move until after the holidays, Brumfield said. More information can be found at
