Josh Reasoner knows the sports apparel and equipment industry inside-out.
It’s his business to.
Reasoner has worked in the industry for 20 years, equipping college teams (Liberty, Wofford, CMU) and professional teams alike (Cincinnati Bengals) with latest the industry has to offer. Whether it’s team jerseys or cleats and shoes or footballs and basketballs Reasoner knows where to get it at a discounted price.
Earlier this year Reasoner opened Team Sports Inc., in Mt. Pleasant at 4855 E. Bluegrass with the hopes of bringing significant savings to local sports teams looking for new apparel and equipment. And, with the new school year looming large on the near horizon, he’s ready to offer up programs and schools with brand names such as Adidas, Nike, Jordan, Under Armour, Wilson, Russell, Rawlings, The NorthFace at great rates.
As a collective whole the sports apparel and equipment industry hasn’t had the easiest time of late, considering how the Covid-19 pandemic shut down everything on every level. Yet, for Reasoner, the industry slowdown allowed him some time to reflect all while looking forward.
“When COVID hit us, the sports stopped, the orders stopped and of course the checks stopped,” said Reasoner, who played a key role in CMU being honored as, ‘Adidas Team School of the Year’ in 2010. “Left with limited options I used the time off to re-structure my thoughts on the industry and the momentum that would need to be built if I wanted to continue to make a difference within the sports world.”
Thus, a new Team Sports Inc. office was born.
Now he’s working to gain promotional agreements and discounts with local schools and companies going forward.
“I thought of how I could help circulate services locally, use my reach in the Nike, Adidas, Under Armour industry to help here at home,” Reasoner added. “I soon decided that working local and opening an office was the best option for Mount Pleasant business, my friends and family.
“I began to hand off some of my out of state accounts in December and began to work on signing local schools, universities and companies within our own city and state and it’s been tremendous.”
To date Reasoner is working with over 45 schools and companies in mid-Michigan and his focus is on keeping it local.
