Paragon Sports covers four sprawling floors, from a basement stocked with running gear and children's sportswear to an attic devoted to boxing and home fitness equipment. The golf and tennis departments dominate the main floor in summer, while snowboards, soft shells, and ski equipment take over the same space in winter. The brands tend toward high-quality, luxury names—think Marmot, Arc'teryx, Patagonia, and Helly Hansen—but more affordable choices such as Coleman camping accessories have a place here too. There’s also a generous supply of men’s, women’s, and children’s North Face jackets and footwear tailored to all kinds of sports, from baseball to boating.Sales
