The Champs are Here! Mall at Bay Plaza Welcomes Champs Store, Bronx, New York

Summer 2014 is about to go out with a bang! This month, the Mall at Bay Plaza will host a grand opening and Bronx shoppers are already counting down the days. The 780,000 square foot shopping mall is going to blow the competition away with its gorgeous architecture, extensive list of shops and restaurants, spacious parking and convenient location. The list of retailers is growing every day, and one store that has just been added to the roster is Champs Sports!

Created in the late ‘80s by the F.W. Woolworth Company, Champs was initially designed to replace the inexpensive department store model with a more “specialty store” approach. Proving wildly successful, the retailer continued to expand, and as of today, the company operates over 550 stores all across the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.

Champs Sports has two marketing slogans that encapsulate the culture of the company perfectly: “Where Sport Lives” and “We Know Game”. When you shop at Champs, you’re guaranteed to get expert advice from other athletes, fitness fanatics and sports lovers. The store also makes a point to always carry the hottest merchandise, following the latest sporting good trends and delivering the season’s best in athletic shoes, clothing and accessories.

On August 14th, make your way to the Bronx for a can’t-miss Grand Opening celebration. Get yourself a brand new pair of sneakers at Champs, and then work your way around the Plaza, checking out 100’s of today’s hottest stores and restaurants. With DJ Alex Sensation on board, and a live band all weekend long, you’re bound to have a blast! For a full list of all the participating retailers, visit The Mall at Bay Plaza online at and check them out on Facebook / Twitter too while you’re at – just go to: and to stay on top of all the latest shopping news.
