Sports and More, a sports collectibles boutique has moved to East Greenwich. Owner Rob Luzzi a Cranston resident, chose to move his store to Main Street East Greenwich after five years located in Providence and then Cranston because “I’ve always enjoyed going to East Greenwich to shop and eat and this location offered an opportunity to be in a central location to take care of my old customers, but was also in a desirable location that would attract new customers” according to Luzzi.
Luzzi has always been an avid sports collector, “I’ve been a collector since I was twelve years old and the opportunity presented itself to open a store, I was then able to make a living at what I had been doing as a hobby”. Luzzi continued “ I worked for a store part time for about ten years, the store then went out of business and there was an opportunity to start doing something I had always wanted to do”.
Sports and More borders more on a sports memorabilia gallery than your run-of-the-mill shop. This is from the expert care Luzzi takes merchandising his products and the welcoming atmosphere inside he curates. You are sure to find what you are looking for in Sports and More’s vast inventory. Says Luzzi “We have the broadest selection of signed and unsigned items in Rhode Island. No other store has the selection of framed and novelty items we do”. Luzzi continued “We carry all of the New England team items but we also carry a lot of out of market team items like the Yankees, Giants, Steelers and Cowboys to name a few”. Sports and More also provides the comfort and security of in person shopping that e-commerce stores can’t offer. “People want to actually touch and feel what they are going to buy, and I like to take the time to educate my customers and make sure that they are comfortable with their purchase and that everything is 100% authentic” says Luzzi.
Sports and More also offers a “Charity Auction Program”. Those who are looking to raise funds for a charity or a cause can pick out their favorite items in the store and include them as auction items at their fundraising events. If the items don’t sell, the items can simply be returned to Sports and More all at no cost to the non-profit organization.
In addition to its vast inventory, superior customer service and charity auction programs, Sports and More also offers framing, authentication, special order services and often feature in store signings with some of New England’s most famous sports celebrities. It’s with all this in mind that it’s no wonder Sports and More is Rhode Island’s premier sports collectibles destination.
Sports and More is located at 99 Main Street East Greenwich. It’s hours of operation are M-SA 10AM-6PM and can be reached at 401-714-0485.
