Our Story

It’s fitting that the Wilson family would name their sporting good store “MoonPie’s Sporting Goods” after their NFL retired patriarch Mike Wilson. Mike reported to the University of Georgia on a full football scholarship in 1973. It was there that Mike was given the nickname “MoonPie” and the name stuck. Mike would go on to play one year in the Canadian Football League and twelve years in the National Football League creating a lasting legacy for his family. After playing with both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Seattle Seahawks the Wilson’s returned home to Gainesville, Georgia where they raised their sons and became pillars within the community.

With a desire to continue the heritage and legacy their father had begun, the Wilson’s saw a need within the community for a sporting goods store that could serve the region with commitment, drive, and passion. Staying true to their competitive nature and family tradition the Wilson’s rose to the challenge and “MoonPie’s Sporting Goods” was born.

MoonPie’s Sporting Goods offers the highest quality products at an affordable price. The “Team Sports” segment of the business provides excellent customer service and access to a representative when questions arise. Specialty products are often in stock or are easily ordered custom to accommodate any client’s athletic needs.

With 5 years in business MoonPie’s is adding additional services focusing on custom screen-printing and printed merchandise to assist businesses with marketing their companies.
