2. What brought your company to SoHo?
Wilson previously had a pop-up next door to this location that opened last summer. The location is a prime retail location, and it’s well-positioned at the intersection of fashion, sport and youth culture.
The diverse and unique community of New York range in fandom from basketball, baseball and football to tennis, pickleball, golf and more. New York truly represents every range of Wilson’s spectrum in terms of category, including fashion.
3. What sets your organization apart from the rest?
The Wilson flagship store offers a curated assortment of best-in-class equipment across a variety of sport categories including the official basketballs of the NBA and WNBA, the Duke–the official ball of the NFL, A2000 gloves, leading tennis rackets like the Pro Staff and Clash, D9 Irons and more. The store will also house Wilson’s athletic-lifestyle sportswear collection, available for both men and women exclusively at Wilson retail stores and on wilson.com. In-store services such as a full-time racket-stringing maestro, leather ball customization, a golf simulator and glove personalization will be available for consumers to enjoy.
Wilson is focused on play, we want our consumers to experience our products first-hand. That is why we created the Thomas E. Wilson Indoor Park–named after Wilson’s founder. The space will provide for endless play, allowing consumers to be at the center of their favorite sport. The gaming space can be transformed to hit tennis balls, demo clubs, play catch, shoot hoops and test out any product the store has to offer.
