Cardinal's Sport Center has recently been sold to long-time general manager Brad Wyatt.

Wyatt is a Texas Tech graduate with 32 years of experience in the retail and sporting goods industry.

"I want to honor the Cardinal family for trusting me to carry on their name and business reputation," said Wyatt. "We will continue to improve with great brands, service, and a care factor for what our customers need and want. The only changes customers will see will be a few enhancements needed to evolve with the changing retail landscape."

Cardinal's Sport Center began serving Lubbock and the surrounding area in 1946. The store was originally known as The Sport Center, but the name was changed in 1969 after being purchased by Johnny Cardinal. Since then, Cardinal's Sport Center has been family-owned and operated for three generations.

Cardinal's Sport Center opened its location at 6524 Slide road in 2011 as the showcase store of the Lubbock area. A new location was opened in Plano in 2009. As a local store, Cardinal's prides itself in customer service, local youth and school sponsorships, and the ability to serve the surrounding community.
