The LIDS Sports Group, operating within Hat World, Inc., is comprised of the LIDS retail headwear stores, the LIDS Locker Room specialty fan retail chain, the LIDS Clubhouse retail stores, the LIDS Team Sports wholesale team sports business and the Internet businesses. Operating out of Indianapolis, Indiana, the retail businesses make up more than 1,000 mall-based, airport, street level and factory outlet locations nationwide, and in Canada and Puerto Rico. LIDS retail stores offer officially licensed and branded headwear of collegiate teams, major professional sports teams, as well as other specialty fashion categories in the latest styles and colors.
The idea of charity is not a new one within the LIDS Sports Group family. In fact, the development of the LIDS Foundation was a natural extension of what many of the Company’s employees were already doing: giving back to their local communities and helping to support those in need. Through this charitable arm of LIDS Sports Group, employees now have the ability to pool together their resources on a greater scale to create synergies that will make an even more significant impact.
