DALLAS—BSN Sports announces the acquisition of the team division of Johnny Mac’s Sporting Goods Stores. The St. Louis-based Johnny Mac’s has served the team sports market in Missouri, Illinois, and Michigan since 1967.
“The McArthur family, under the current leadership of Bob and Rick McArthur, has built Johnny Mac’s into a leader in sporting goods and a trusted partner to the Midwest’s most prestigious customer base,” says Terry Babilla, president of BSN SPORTS. “We are confident that their proud history of delivering innovative brands, personalized solutions and expert insight serves as an ideal complement to our own industry-leading platform, and we look forward to a bright future together and to bringing immediate benefits to customers and employees alike.”
“This is, first and foremost, a ‘people’ business, and we are confident that Johnny Mac’s employees will find greater opportunity and additional resources under the BSN SPORTS banner which, in turn, will benefit our loyal customers,” state the McArthurs. “We are incredibly grateful for their many years of support.”
BSN continues to make inroads with nationwide acquisitions. In January 2019, the company announced the acquisition of Iowa-based Sports Page Team.
