Founded in 1946, MC Sports started with one store in Grand Rapids Michigan. The original name, Michigan Clothiers, reflected the wide range of products offered to its customers. From men’s clothing to military surplus, the original store was a favorite shopping destination for local residents. Refining its business strategy in 1962, the company changed its name to MC Sporting Goods and focused entirely on quality sports equipment, footwear, and apparel.
Since that time, MC Sports has taken its retail concept to markets throughout the Midwest. In 1987, MC Sports accelerated its expansion through the acquisition of Morrie Mages’ Sports, a three-store chain located in the Chicago area. A year later, Browns Sporting Goods was acquired adding 19 stores to its portfolio.
By the end of 2012, MC Sports will operate 74 stores in seven states throughout the Midwest. Future growth is continually being mapped out with a strong emphasis on locations throughout the Midwest.
What sets MC Sports apart from other retailers is its commitment to quality sports gear and its support of the communities where it does business.
Every MC Sports store gives back to their community through team sponsorships, fund raising programs, team and group discounts, and a long-standing commitment to the Children’s Miracle Network.
As one of the few remaining privately held sporting goods chains, MC Sports is truly a unique retailer. Built on a foundation of Service, Family, Convenience, Community, and Integrity, you can be sure that MC Sports will continue to offer quality, top-name sports gear at competitive prices
