MARYSVILLE — Five years after they first opened in Marysville, Play It Again Sports has moved to a new location, that affords them more space for the influx of customer traffic they’ve gotten over the years.

Co-owners Rob and Susan Scott have gone from the Holiday Inn Express to 115 Marysville Mall Way, going from 3,100 to 3,500 square feet.

“As we did more business, we needed more selling space,” Susan said. “We always had our eyes on this shopping center.”

The Scotts welcome the chance to move closer to downtown Marysville, especially historic Third Street, and are using their expanded floor space to offer a broader variety of sports equipment.

“We can cater to more categories of sports,” Susan said. “We’ve increased our outdoor water sports selection, especially since we’re right next to the Ebey Waterfront Park.”

Rob acknowledged that the past few years have provided an education about which types of sports equipment are most in demand in Marysville.

“We’ve learned what the community wants to buy,” Rob said. “This community craves more baseball, more lacrosse, more soccer, more skiing, more snowboarding and more golf. And yes, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they’re into water sports, which is why we’re stocking more paddle boards and wake boards.”

In retrospect, Rob chides himself for not seeing the connection sooner, not only because of the Ebey Waterfront Park, but also the proximity of sports like Lake Goodwin.

“It’s great that Marysville’s sports pursuits are so diversified,” Rob said. “That really helps us, because if one of our spots is having a slow season, then we’ve still got plenty of customers for our other sports.”
