Sports Zone sneaker store coming to DCUSA

A reader tipped me off that there's a sign next to the Staples saying "Sports Zone coming soon." Sports Zone is a local chain of "lifestyle footwear and apparel" stores with about 20 locations in the area, including the one on M Street in Georgetown, pictured. They seem to have mostly athletic shoes plus jeans, t-shirts, caps and such, judging from their website.


I'm ambivalent about this place, though I hope it doesn't hurt Nash's Sports, a smaller chain up in the Tivoli building north of Park Road.

I've bought a few things at the Georgetown location, they often have pretty good sales.

I'm down for small businesses, but Nash's is garbage.

A thug emporium!!! Sweet. I hope they have security, because this place will get shoplifted every single day.

I second the earlier post. Nash's is worthless, and could use some competition
