An acronym for our core belief
Do Activities, Stay Happy!
Legends, headquartered in Owensboro, KY, has been in business since November 2009. Prior to the change of ownership Legends had been focused on golf and ”pop up” retail at soccer events across the US. Legends completely “relaunched” the business with the opening of our “Outfitters of Active People Store” in February 2011.
The focus of the retail store is providing active people of all fitness levels and interests; the apparel, footwear, and accessories they need to stay active. Not only do we take pride in providing our ”activists” the best products, but also providing them services that go beyond traditional “retail.” Our model has allowed Legends to grow quickly into the ”go to” place for active people all over Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana. We invite you to stop in and experience “it” for yourself at 325 Park Plaza Drive Owensboro, KY 42301. You can also reach us by phone at 270-684-9600
In addition to the retail store, Legends has seen exceptional growth in both our team and online business. Through our website, thenextlegend.com, we have now sold products to customers in every US state. Finally, our Team Sales division now supplies multiple colleges, high schools and some of the largest youth soccer clubs in the United States.
