Sportsman Chalet will be moving this summer to 2420 James St., next to Trader Joe’s.
Tenant improvement work is already underway and the business plans to open in the new space by early August, owner Noel Lemke said in a press release. Sportsman Chalet first opened in 1972 and has been in its 13,500-square-foot location at 114 W. Holly St. since 1996.
Though the new space is smaller — around 8,000 square feet — it is located in a busy retail area and has free parking, which was a big factor in deciding to move, Lemke said.
“As much as we like to see people riding their bikes and using public transportation, we don’t see people coming in to buy a pair of skis and carting them away on a bicycle,” he said. “We will miss our downtown neighbors, but are very excited to become a part of the excitement and growth that is occurring in the Sunnyland area.”
