BSN Sports acquired Best Sports Inc., based in Rogers, AR.
Best Sports has been family-owned and operated since its founding in 1972 by owner Guy Davis, having since established an additional office and presence in the greater Fayetteville, AR area as a sporting goods leader.
Terry Babilla, BSN Sports President, said, “Over nearly half a century, Guy Davis and his family built their business on the pillars of superior customer service, broad product selection and a deep and abiding commitment to their local community. These attributes align perfectly with how we approach our business. We are thrilled with the addition of Best Sports to our platform and our enhanced ability to service northwest Arkansas area coaches, athletes and athletic programs with a strong local touch. Looking ahead, we will continue to opportunistically grow our team with seasoned professionals who share our values and have a passion for building lifelong customer relationships.”
Davis, who will join BSN Sports with Best Sports Co-owners, daughter Teresa Black and son-in-law Byron Black, added, “Over the last 49 years, Best Sports has developed deep customer relationships through our incredible team and customer-first approach. We are excited to build an even stronger future by joining BSN Sports. This next step will equip our sales and customer service teams with industry-leading selling tools and technology to enhance our support of our customers.”
Babilla concluded, “Across the country, our BSN Sports family is eager to support their local student-athletes, coaches and athletic directors as they work to return to play and enjoy team Sports once again. The addition of Best Sports brings great momentum to our sales platform as we start this year and only strengthens our commitment to providing superior, personal expertise and guidance for our customers.”
BSN Sports is a division of Varsity Brands.
