About Us

Lee’s Sports is a specialty sports store located in downtown Nashville, IL.  Our founder, Lee Borowiak opened his original dime store — Lee’s Variety — in 1954 and it has been a staple establishment in the community ever since, focusing on excellent customer service, in small-town, family-owned form.

In 1978, the Variety store started carrying sports equipment with companies like Champion and Converse.  In 1984, Lee’s son, Mike, transformed the small section of sports in Lee’s Variety into what is now known as Lee’s Sports.

Nowadays, the family atmosphere is still very present.  If you visit Lee’s Variety or Lee’s Sports, you will still see Lee and Mike,  working around the store, along with Mary Ann, Lee’s Wife, Sara Habbe, Lee’s daughter, and Zach, Mike’s son.
