Sports Basement Berkeley: What’s in it for you?

Berkeley sports basement

This weekend, the {510} Families families had a great time saying hello to readers at Berkeley’s new Sports Basement store where we allowed parents to “valet park” their children with babysitters while they shopped.

Parents exclaimed at the deals they were getting, and the space, formerly Iceland skating rink, had such a unique feel, the kids enjoyed being there, too.

Why is Sports Basement so great for families?

  • Diversity of merchandise from bike helmets and running shoes to children’s fleece jackets and socks. Don’t think Big 5; think REI.
  • Dedicated to our community, this store has fundraisers coming out of it’s ears. Contact them to arrange a special shopping day for your children’s school. They’ll give back a percentage of revenue to your non-profit of choice.
  • Reasonable prices. I bought several items of clothing for myself, all affordably priced.
  • Space. A cement perimeter path enables test drives of jogging strollers, bicycles, and shoes that will make you run faster (if you just believe). A glass elevator takes you upstairs for more shopping in an open balcony.
  • Ski gear leasing. Instead of buying skis they outgrow, Sports Basement will rent your family gear for the entire season.

We introduced these four East Bay babysitters to our guests, and you can hire them via (Use code FOR510FAM25 on for a free month of Unlimited Access membership.)
