Street Sports is concentrating on it's core business
in a new and better way.
Thursday 3 November 2005 -- We are pleased
to announce that we have finally worked out the details to take over our old
installation facility at the Dragstrip. Many may know that we were working
out of this facility until March on this year. Well it is a done deal! What does
this mean you ask? It means we have secured a multi-year deal on a
facility that cures a few problems we have had. Although it helps us in
many ways, it will help all of you even more. How? Let us address
some of the main points:
We are moving installation back into the building on
the hill at the end of the street. We are also moving the display

in this building. Quality has already been top notch, yet it should
still be expected to improve further. Speed will be the improvement we
seek the most, just as before. Many of our projects were just taking too long before
and pulling us off of other work that could be done. This will be
Warehousing of products will also change. This along with the revamping of our
wholesale and mailorder departments which have been moved to a new Lexington
location will help countless people who are
not close enough to make the trip to our location here in Kentucky. It
will also help expand our import and export service beyond what it is
A new larger sign is in the works with our new logo
(above) that will make it easier to find our location.
Many more smaller improvements will be forthcoming over
the next few months that will be the icing on the cake. So stay tuned.
The first half of the move will be completed by 15
November (the installation will be up and running at the new location).
The second half of the move will be completed by 1
December (the sales department will be up and running at the new location).
All administrative functions will be running in the new
Lexington location by 15 November also. (A new fax number will be
