Sports Basement Presidio is staying put for now!

Sports Basement PresidioWith the George Lucas fiasco in the news recently, lots of customers have been asking us what’s going to happen to Sports Basement.

Our Presidio store will remain at its current awesome location through 2016, and then will probably move to a new awesome location 700 yards down the street toward the Palace of Fine Arts.

When we have finalized the details about the relocation, our customers will be the first to find out. One way or another, we’ll continue to be a force for great deals and community happenings in the Presidio.

And if you didn’t already know it, we have a second San Francisco location on Bryant Street in the Mission (some call it Potrero) with the same amazing deals and vibe.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the latest Basement news.
