With Leicester City flying high in Europe there’s more demand than ever to pick up official merchandise and replica shirts.
Did you know there’s an official Leicester City merchandise retailer in the city centre? JC Sports has been at the heart of the city for over 25 years now. Located right next to Leicester Market you can pick up everything you need for the Leicester City fan or keen sportsperson in your life.
We caught up with them for this week’s BID Spotlight feature.
What sets JC Sports apart from other sports shops in the city?
JC Sports has been established in Leicester for the past 25 years , we are independent shop and offer a personal service. All our customers keep coming back to us because of the service we provide
You’re an official stockist of Leicester City merchandise, which has been your favourite replica shirt over recent years?
We have been an official Leicester City shop over 9 years but have always supported the club over 20 years My all-time favourite shirt is the Walkers Crisp logo from the 80s.
What’s your favourite thing about your location near the market?
Our location near the market means we’re familiar to a lot of local people from Leicester and we can support the local area too by bringing in new people.
How important is it that people continue to shop in town rather than online or out of town retail parks?
The city centre is so important to Leicester. We need people to keep supporting us even when alternatives are available.
What promotions do you have coming up at JC Sports?
In May we’ll start promoting the new Leicester City shirts for the 2022/23 season, so that’s the biggie for us!
JC Sports is located at 73 Market Place in the city centre.
