The first James F. Brine, Inc. sporting goods store opened in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1867. Six generations later, the Brines still own and operate the stores. Our legal business name is still James F. Brine, Inc. but most of our customers simply know us as Brine's Sporting Goods.
We are located at 69 Main Street in downtown Concord Massachusetts. We have been recognized as the oldest sporting goods store in the United States. Our history started in Harvard Square, Cambridge where the original Brines used to make the goods and clothes sold in the store, we branched out to several other locations, but have consolidated back to one.. We are known for our excellent products and customer service.
We specialize in lacrosse, baseball, soccer, tennis, swimming, field hockey, supportive running shoes, women and men's apparel, and The North Face. Our stores are known for their old time feel. We've been called all sorts of things...retro, quaint, old-fashioned, but that's our charm. In today's mega-chain world, we stand out with our knowledgeable staff, personal attention, and quality hand selected merchandise. As we expand online we hope to give everyone across the country the same experience that we have brought to Eastern, MA for over 150+ years.
