"Store sales in our first year of operations are expected to add around $200,000 to $300,000 to our top-line growth in 2013. But higher revenue growth is expected as we form relationships with our core target market -- the coaches and owners who require uniforms and equipment for hundreds of players," said Bill Sigler, CEO of Smack. "Dozens of soccer coaches have agreed to help us launch's Smack's 2013 Custom Soccer/Futsal team line this Spring, and we anticipate other, new relationships to accelerate our sales momentum."
