Sport Chalet going out of business, stores closing across San Diego
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Four Sport Chalet stores in San Diego are preparing to permanently close as the company shuts down all business operations. Sport Chalet has already discontinued online sales, which the company announced Saturday. 33 stores across Southern California will be closed in total. The last day locations of the sporting goods store will be open is Apr. 29, according to a statement released by the company.
Sport Chalets in Mission Valley, Point Loma, University Towne Center and San Marcos will be shut down, though it’s unclear when the final day of business will be for the stores. Stores could be open for two more weeks or two more months, with no definitive date set yet, according to an employee of the Mission Valley location. Stores have begun marking merchandise down, with everything currently at a 10 percent discount.
Sport Chalet was founded in 1959 and went public in 1992. The company began in Southern California but expanded over time to reach Northern California, Arizona and Nevada. The first store was located in La Canada Flintridge.
"Thank you for your loyalty over the years. We hope to see you at our store closing sales," the company said in a statement released on their website.
