Two West Stadium Closings

Advantage sports and King's Chosen are out of retail, but not out of business.

by Sabine Bickford

From the June, 2019 issue

Advantage Sports closed in mid-May due to "lack of business," says Scott Schmunk. He and Mike Charles opened the W. Stadium store in 2011.

Advantage was the last independent sports retailer in the area, and Schmunk blames online competitors for the closing. He says Advantage will continue providing local sports teams with equipment wholesale. "We had a good run, and we enjoyed working with all our customers," says Schmunk.

Just down the road on W. Stadium, the King's Chosen furniture showroom has also closed. Anna Czinski--owner and daughter of founders James and Johanna Asztalos--moved the handcrafted furniture store from downtown to W. Stadium two years ago after it was displaced by construction of Reza Rahmani's new building at 315 S. Main. Czinski says she'll continue to provide furniture through individual inquiries at the store's phone number: (734) 332-0307.     (end of article)
