Brine's Sporting Goods
America's Oldest Family Owned Sporting Goods Store, Est 1867
The first James F. Brine, Inc. sporting goods store opened in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1867. Six generations later, the Brines still own and operate the stores. Our legal business name is still James F. Brine, Inc. but most of our customers simply know us as Brine's Sporting Goods.
We have two locations in Concord and Sudbury, Massachusetts. We have been recognized as the oldest sporting goods store in the United States. Our history started in Harvard Square, Cambridge where the original Brines used to make the goods and clothes sold in the store. In fact, there were six stores in the Brine family in and around the Boston area. Each store was independant of each other and each known for thier excellent products and customer service. Some of the Brine family started manufacturing lacrosse, soccer, and field hockey goods in the early and mid 1900s and went on to become one of the biggest lacrosse companies in the country.
We would like to welcome you to the online portion of our company. We specialize in lacrosse, baseball, soccer, tennis, rugby, swimming, field hockey, supportive running shoes, women and men's apparel, and The North Face. Our stores are known for their old time feel. We've been called all sorts of things...retro, quaint, old-fashioned, jammed packed...but that's our charm. In today's mega-chain world, we stand out with our knowledgeable staff, personal attention, and quality hand selected merchandise.
With our new online website, we want to give everyone across the country the same experience that we have brought to Eastern, MA for over 140+ years, which is our dedication to YOU the customer.
