In downtown Los Angeles, the new Team LA store in the Staples Center is now open to the public. Occupying some 7,000 s.f., the new store is nearly double the size of the previous store and features products from all Los Angeles’s beloved teams: Lakers, Clippers and Kings.

The LA Team store is the first and only one in the world with three-sided rotating walls to hold three teams’ merchandise, allowing for speedy changes of merchandise when multiple teams play on the same day. The store also features 25 checkout stations, 12 TVs that play live feeds during games and related footage on non-game days, a gallery of collectible artwork including autographed memorabilia as well as numerous other needs and wants for all fans of LA teams.

Specific building features include a 200’ long, 60’ radius LED soffit that runs through the entire store and changes colors for each of the teams. In addition, the store has a black porcelain floor tile, walnut fixtures and drywall ceiling to contrast and compliment the industrial accents of corrugated metal, exposed ceiling and technical graphics creating a very polished, up-scale atmosphere inside the store.
