New sports store opens in Hoxie
Lawrence County residents can now find a variety of sports memorabilia and team merchandise at the recently opened The Man Cave Sports Store and More.
Among merchandise available at the store is personalized Mustang and Bobcat merchandise, as well as Razorbacks, Cardinals, NBA, NFL and MLB teams.
"If you can imagine it with your team's logo, we have it or can get it," Ham said.
While the store name is The Man Cave, Ham emphasized that they cater to women as well.
"This is not just a men's shop," he said. "We look forward to welcoming new clients and thank our repeat customers."
Owner Joe Ham said he and his senior vice presidents, Josh "Frog" Baldwin and Allen Blackwell, are all former athletes who believe in supporting the local community.
"We are a staff of very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable experts with over 100 combined years of sports expertise, both as sports fans with endless knowledge of every sport and as players," he said. Ham received All-State honors while at Lake City, and Baldwin and Blackwell were All-Conference players at Salem and Walnut Ridge, respectively.
Ham said they also offer "Teaching Youth Their Athletic Ability" classes for current or hopeful athletes.
"Let us start early, and we are confident with our teaching tools you will see vast skills improvement within six months," he said.
The store, located at 105 Soutwest Texas Street in Hoxie, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ham can be reached at 870-897-6451; Blackwell at 870-637-4145; and Baldwin at 870-809-4578.
