Sports Basement announced it is set to open its largest location in Redwood City.

The sporting goods retailer will open its 10th Bay Area store in the recently-closed Toys ‘R’ Us and Babies ‘R’ Us sites at 202 Walnut St. Sports Basement is already working at the site and aims to open in time for the holiday season, which also coincides with the company’s 20th anniversary, the company announced last week

The company’s largest store will have a total of over 88,000 square feet of space. And like the other stores, the Redwood City location will include space set aside for the community, including gathering spaces, comfy couches, children’s play areas and more.

“We’d been searching for a perfect spot in the mid-peninsula for over a decade,” says Aaron Schweifler, director of operations. “As soon as we saw this space, we had huge visions for it.”

Sports Basement’s “Basementeer loyalty program” gives members 10-percent off every purchase while donating 10-percent of profits to local charities and schools. The company is encouraging representatives of Redwood City-area charities and schools to contact in order to become a beneficiary of the donations.
