ROSWELL, Ga., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PGA TOUR Superstore today announced plans to open its next retail superstore in Paramus, New Jersey. Scheduled to open later this year, the store will be located in the northwest quadrant of Route 17 and the Garden State Parkway at Exit #163.
"As a retail mecca for both New York and New Jersey residents, the Borough of Paramus is a perfect location for our superstore concept," said PGA TOUR Superstore President and CEO Dick Sullivan. "With plans to open just in time for the holiday shopping season, golf and tennis enthusiasts in the Northeast corridor will find PGA TOUR Superstore their one-stop shopping destination. Customers will quickly learn that we pride ourselves in offering the best and most popular brands along with expert advice. We have trained our sales associates to match the optimal equipment with each player's swing and experience; and, since our associates do not work on commission, customers will never feel pressured."
