Maryland-based Lacrosse Retailer Shutters Stores Across US

Posted: 11/10/2017 08:51:00 -05:00 Updated:

COCKEYSVILLE, Md. (AP)- A Maryland-based lacrosse retailer has vacated its headquarters and closed all 16 of its stores across the country.

The Baltimore Sun reports that, as of Thursday, LAX World's stores in Maryland, Virginia, New York, Georgia, Colorado and Washington state were all closed.

Court records show that CEO Frank Barbarino and the company are facing numerous lawsuits from landlords and vendors.

The company's headquarters and warehouse in Cockeysville, Maryland, is empty and locked. An eviction petition on the door from the Baltimore County District Court says LAX World owes more than $11,200.

Barbarino's attorney, Douglas H. Seitz, declined to comment.

Started in 1988, LAX World was the nation's first store dedicated to the growing sport of lacrosse. The company had been expanding since Barbarino and two others purchased it in 2013.

  • Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
