Houston Sport Shop At 4717 South Main St.

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I was reading old University of Houston The EXtra publications and came across this add for a retail store called Houston Sport Shop located at 4717 South Main St.  The magazine issue is dated June 16, 1948, so the sports store is ancient.

Does anyone remember this store? Have any memories or stores?  I wonder if the mom and pop business closed down, or if it was purchased by a larger company and merged into something bigger.

I can't figure out where this building actually was.  Google is showing me Main & Kirby near the Fiesta.  The address should be in Midtown? Does the building still stand?
