Sportibles has returned to Crown Center. The locally owned shop sells licensed professional and college sports apparel, sports memorabilia and collectibles. It also has locations in the City Market, Independence Center, Oak Park Mall and Ward Parkway Center.
It originally opened in Crown Center in 2009 but left in March 2014 to make way for the redevelopment of Halls department store.
“We did so well at Crown Center before that we wanted to go back there,” said owner David Walby.
Sportibles took the former Furnishings for Her spot on the second floor by Function Junction. Furnishings for Her closed in May, according to Crown Center officials.
