We offer a comprehensive assortment of brand-name and private-brand products, operating more than 400 stores from coast to coast, under the following corporate and franchise banners: Sport Chek, Sports Experts, Atmosphere, National Sports, Intersport, Nevada Bob's Golf, Hockey Experts, Pro-Hockey Life, Sports Rousseau and L'entrept du Hockey. With these tops brands under our belt, we provide an extensive product mix, making us Canadas go-to sporting goods destination. The earliest days of FGL Sports dates back to 1974, when John Forzani, former chairman of the board for The Forzani Group Ltd., opened a retail location called Forzanis Locker Room in Calgary, which sold athletic footwear, apparel, and sports equipment. The years to follow saw retail expansion and a number of business acquisitions. It continued in the early 1990s with the acquisition of Sport Chek International Ltd. in 1991, and Hogarth's Sport & Ski the following year. The Forzani Group officially became Canada's largest specialty sporting goods company in 1994 after the acquisition of Sports Experts Inc.bringing the retailer to 260 stores and annual gross revenues of over $266 million. In the two decades leading to today, the company continued its expansion acquiring brand names such as Coast Mountain Sport, Sport Mart, Nevada Bobs Golf, National Sports, Fitness Source, and Athletes World. In 2011, Forzani Group Ltd. was acquired by Canadian Tire Corporation and renamed FGL Sports, making it Canadas ultimate sports retailer with over 1,000 stores across the country.
