City Sports Is Closing: “It’s Been a Good Run” Says Email to Customers

"There will forever be a City Sports family."

Fellow Philly Mag blog Biz Philly reported yesterday that City Sports will be shuttering all of its 26 locations, including three in the Philly area, as the company liquidates its assets — everything in store is on sale, according to the website — after declaring bankruptcy in October and failing to find a buyer.

Yesterday, the Boston-based retailer sent a rather heartfelt goodbye email to customers that recaps the shop’s 32-year run, thanks customers and employees alike, and encourages folks to stay active.

The full text of the email is below:
