Central, NJ – March 2017, The Universal Lacrosse Company, A lacrosse- specialty chain of stores and e-Retailer, has announced the acquisition of an up-and-coming e-Retailer, The Stringers Depot. The Stringers Depot is a relatively new organization in the lacrosse world, but they have quickly found a niche amongst a very special group of lacrosse players. They cater to the everyday player; however, their core demographic is the entrepreneurial lacrosse stringing enthusiast. The Stringers Depot prides themselves on being the one stop shop for stringing supplies offering the latest premium lacrosse stringing supplies and accessories at an affordable and accommodating price. In addition to offering premium products at an affordable price to the ‘everyday’ player, consumers are able to sign up for a free membership which grants eligibility for exclusive membership discounts on bulk quantities. Perfect for stick stringing lacrosse entrepreneurs. The social medium Instagram has spawned the age of innumerable young stringing businesses. These businesses allow players to get their sticks strung with a level of detail and personalization that some lacrosse stores do not offer. Although Universal Lacrosse offers these services and was founded by stringers, they see the value in having local team stringers in all markets. It was this fact, that lead Universal Lacrosse to partner with and eventually acquire The Stringers Depot.
