Local business owners are celebrating 30 years of providing the region with sporting goods by bringing the largest sporting retail group in the world to the region.
Locally owned and operated since 1993, INTERSPORT Bundaberg was previously a Sportspower store.
INTERSPORT will still be run by the same familiar faces of Gail and Mick Pimm who local customers have been trusting with their sporting needs for three decades.
Know as ‘The Heart of Sport’ in local communities, INTERSPORT is the largest sporting retail group in the world, with the Australian operation opening in 2014 with 37 stores.
The number of stores has grown over the last decade with Bundaberg joining the group as the sixteenth store in Queensland and store number 78 across the country.
“We’re thrilled to be joining the INTERSPORT group, it’s a fantastic opportunity for our business to go from strength to strength in this fantastic community,” Gail said.
“We pride ourselves on being sports experts and joining INTERSPORT will allow us to continue that with access to the latest products from the major sporting brands that customers know and trust.”
INTERSPORT Australia CEO Kevin O’Hanlon said the addition of Bundaberg was an exciting one for the group.
“It’s been a very straightforward process with the team at Bundaberg, they’ve really bought into the INTERSPORT vision and so it was a natural fit for both parties,” he said.
“The next 12 months is an exciting time for the INTERSPORT brand in Australia and we’re looking forward to adding more stores to our network across the country.”
The existing store had been closed for re-fitting and was set to re-open on 5 May 2023.
INTERSPORT Bundaberg is located at 233 Bourbong Street.
