Our Story

Michael and Margaret Jabusch opened the original Athletes Corner store in 1979.  Located in Hazel Dell Washington, just north of Vancouver.  While other sporting goods dealers were available, they felt that the area could, and should, be serviced better.  Their goal was simple and clear, to bring the best possible service and selection for sporting goods to the area.  1986 saw the opening of their second location on the east side of Vancouver in Cascade Park.  1991 brought their next location, this time in Longview Washington.  This location brought special meaning with it, located just across the Cowlitz River from Kelso where Michael and Margaret both grew up.  The fourth and final addition to the Athletes Corner family opened in Centralia in 1995.

Our business is built on a foundation of dealing honestly with our customers and doing our best to provide quality products with superior service, selection and value.  We have an in-house screen printing and embroidery staff that outfits thousands of athletes every year.  We also service a number of area businesses with a complete line of corporate apparel ranging from T-shirts and polos to caps and jackets.  We have a reputation for delivering on-time and at a reasonable price.
