Austell Celebrates Grand Opening of Play It Again Sports®

Austell, Ga. – Local families now have a place that not only puts cash back into their pockets, but sells gently-used sports and fitness equipment for less.

A favorite with families, the new Play It Again Sports® in Austell opens on Thursday, February 15 at 1025 East-West Connector. The unique resale store buys and sells gently-used sports and fitness equipment—including football equipment, baseball gloves and bats, hockey gear, golf clubs, soccer, lacrosse equipment, motorized treadmills, elliptical and bikes, benches and weights, and more.

Play It Again Sports Austell invites the local community to visit the new location for a chance to win for promotions, giveaways and prizes. Additionally, Zues Frazier, a professional boxer and son of the legendary Joe Frazier, will be at the store for autographs and pictures throughout the weekend.

"I’m thrilled to open my business in such a warm, welcoming, sports-oriented community like Austell," said Nyla Nikkhoo, who co-owns the new Play It Again Sports store with Parviz Nikkhoo. "I’m sure everyone will love the breadth of new and used merchandise we provide. Parents love Play It Again Sports because they can trade-in their quality, used equipment for cash or even trade-up for new gear—saving them both time and money."

Nikkhoo has lived in the area for 21 years, and has owned and operated MMA and fitness gyms for over 30 years. Play It Again Sports has given her an exciting opportunity for her to utilize her background in fitness within the retail market.


Unlike a typical consignment store, no appointment is necessary to sell sports and fitness equipment to Play It Again Sports. Plus, the store pays consumers on the spot for goods it purchases from them.

The Austell Play It Again Sports is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday – Saturday and 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit
