Local sportswear retail stores are found in every mall and many local strip malls. They specialize in casual attire and gear, just like the name suggests. Expect to find a full line of sportswear for men, women, boys and girls. Clothing makes up the majority of local sportswear retail stores, but most carry footwear and accessories such as hats, sunglasses, gloves, watches, belts, wallets, and bags. Big name manufacturers and lesser known manufacturers will be represented. Many of the items you will find in local sportswear retail stores are geared toward an active lifestyle, and will be suitable for hiking, rock climbing, spending time at the beach, or kicking back on a cruise. You will discover styles preferred by the surfer crowd, and by those who would rather watch from shore. Local sportswear retail stores carry clothing for every season. In spring and summer, shop local sportswear retail stores for items such as short-sleeved shirts and shorts. These stores will carry many styles, from traditional Hawaiian shirts, to sleek golf shirts, to casual pullovers. Shorts will range from cargo shorts to Bermudas, to swim trunks. Styles will be available for everyone in the family. These clothes are typically made from very breathable materials that dry quickly, making it comfortable to be active, without becoming overheated. These stores will also feature items for sun protection in these seasons. Make sure you pick up sunglasses for everyone, and choose those with high UV protection. Caps, visors, sun hats, and more, will keep the sun from doing its damage to heads and faces. Local sportswear retail shops will carry enough styles so that every shopper will be able to find a style they enjoy. Footwear for these seasons will include sandals for the beach, hiking shoes and boots for the trail, walking shoes for the track, and casual shoes for the graduation open house.
