The Vault to Open Sports Apparel Store
The Vault, a Charleston-based retro sports apparel store, is opening a third location in Greenville.
The retail store will occupy about 2000 square feet in the former Scott and Bellew space at 213 North Main St. The Vault will carry a variety of upscale sports apparel for men, women and kids and specializes in older, hard-to-find logos.
Owner Wayne Welden said he will incorporate some local sports flavor into the store’s décor, maybe with Shoeless Joe Jackson and Greenville Drive memorabilia, “to make it feel local,” he said.
Merchandise will cover over 125 college teams and all of the pro football and baseball teams. Furman, Wofford, Clemson and USC will all be represented. The store has a large selection of team-inspired items including baby bibs, T-shirts, jackets, hats and banners.
“We’re so excited about Greenville,” said Welden, who had looked into expanding to Greenville a few years ago, in the exact same space. Things didn’t work out at the time, but now, it “seems like it was in the cards.”
The store will employ four or five people and is scheduled to open November 1, 2013.
