The new City Sports store at 475 Washington St. in Wellesley opened its doors over the weekend, calling attention to itself with blue and white balloons and a makeshift sign covering up the old St. Moritz sign (a new sign should be on the way shortly). A more formal grand opening, complete with prizes and treats, is planned for Oct.1 from 10am-2pm.
The 10,000 sq. ft-plus store has an airy layout, and for now, that new-store-smell. City Sports is heavily into running, tennis and yoga gear, plus highlights an assortment of watches and electronic gear in an interactive setting near the front of the store. A customer wielding his own tennis racket entered the store right before me and immediately got down to business with a store associate. I ventured over to the athletic socks area, where there was a rich assortment.
One thing worth noting: City Sports really doesn’t target kids (not that they aren’t welcome to visit). So you might find a few things here and there for children, but this is really more of a store catering to grown-up jocks.
