Golf Town -> Golfsmith

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
A few years ago they opened a bunch of Golf Town stores around MA, but I got an email a few days ago that they were transitioning to Golfsmiths. I liked Golf Town, but Golfsmith is nice too.

Anyone know if this transition is only the U.S. stores (which, so far as I know, are only in MA so far), or is this the Canadian stores as well?

According to their website it is only the US stores.

Have you heard? Golf Town and Golfsmith have recently combined to become the largest golf retailer in the world! To better serve you in the US, we are transitioning our US Golf Town site to Golfsmith.com.

Looking for Golf Town? No need to worry! We will still be operating our Golf Town stores in Canada. Our US Golf Town stores will be switching over to Golfsmith stores in the near future.

If you're looking for Golf Town specific products, brands or Canadian stores visit golftown.ca.

If you want to shop for golf products here in the US we'd like to welcome you to golfsmith.com.

Golf Town acquired Golfsmith last year. A better, faster entry strategy to the US market. Up to that point,they'd only opened a handful of US stores in MA. I would imagine the Golfsmith brand is better known in the US so that's what they'll go with in the States and keep te Golf Town brand here in Canada, where it is by far the leading golf retailer.

The store in Reading, MA changed the sign last month.  I went in yesterday and the staff was all different people. I hope folks didn't lose jobs over this.  The store doesn't seem much different inside.

Interesting. I just went to the Golf Town in Seekonk for the very first time about a week ago (got a driver given to me re-gripped) and I was in complete and total gear overload. My neck was on a swivel looking at everything in that place! I'll be interested to see what happens to the store/inventory with it becoming Golfsmith. Up to now (which hasn't been that long) I've bought my gear at Dicks which is only 5 minutes from me, but the Golf Town/Golfsmith store is only 12-13 minutes from my office so I may end up there a bunch.

I hope not, I've got a few friends who worked there, and the staffs (I've been to the Natick, Bellingham, and Northborough stores) were always nice.
