If you have been a follower of the blog or main site then this store will be familiar to you – WeGotSoccer. They are well known for their many good deals and sales as well as supplying us with some gear for review from time to time. Of course the store itself is well know especially to those in northern New England. Many soccer enthusiast make a yearly trip down to WeGotSoccer to obtain a new pair of cleats, even if they have to travel 100 miles to get there. I myself had the opportunity to make a trip down to experience the store firsthand recently.
My first impression upon entering was that they must have a huge backroom. The actually store portion takes up I think less than half of the entire building, which means that they have a huge back room brimming with boots and gear. The display room itself is very customer friendly and had just undergone a make over. Overall, the set up is very attractive and the boot wall has a very nice mix of brands. Staff wise I found them pretty knowledgeable on the gear (I couldn’t resist helping out a few customers of my own while I was there) and they also had excellent customer service. There was one hostile lady that showed up while I was there and they handled her quite expertly. Overall the whole trip was a positive experience, I’ll definitely be making efforts to come down once a year at least.
Their location near Gillete Stadium in Foxborough MA, home of the New England Revolution, means that you could even stop by before or after a Revs game which is pretty awesome. They occasionally even have signings at the store.
