The store was opened in 1978 by Randy Rubin and his brother Ron Rubin. Randy later bought out his brother and has the store has become a mainstay in Raton’s downtown business community. Students, civic organizations and other businesses depend on Randy’s expertise to provide the perfect trophy, gift, jacket, or athletic shoes for that special occasion. In 1999 Tami Rubin, Randy’s wife added embroidery to the services provided by Sports Arena.
