Iowa Sports Supply Marks New Site in Cedar Falls Industrial Park | Business – Local News
Activity covers much of the northeastern quadrant of Iowa, generally north of Interstate 80 and east of Interstate 35.
“I think it’s going to be really good,” Ellis said of the new location. “The industrial park is growing like crazy. The traffic is excellent. I know there aren’t a lot of retail outlets here, but we opened on Monday and we’ve already had traffic, ”she said. “I was surprised, actually.
“I would say most of our customers know what they want. We certainly have a lot of loyal customers. We sell covers to schools. For the real ones in store, we make a lot of Cedar Falls (high school) Tiger clothing. The sports of each season are presented on the exhibition floor. ISS also offers physical education uniforms and works with rappelling clubs.
There is also a potential market with neighboring businesses, Ellis said. “Our intentions are, once settled, to go and see businesses and see if they need corporate clothing. Businesses may want softball team uniforms or promotional items like mugs or pens.
The company employs 8 to 12 people depending on the time of year.
Proximity to the East Viking Road shopping area is a plus. “I got a call from a customer and asked him where we were, and he was in Menards, and he said, ‘Oh, we’re straight down the road.’ I think we will be good. We are really excited.
