MIRA’S Sports and More is South Texas’ oldest, family-owned and operated, full-service custom apparel and sporting goods dealer.

MIRA’S is a women-owned and minority-owned business, committed to providing a convenient and customer-friendly experience for businesses, schools, athletes, coaches, and fans.

Founded in 1976, Manuel I. Garcia established MIRA’S Mending Shop, named for his wife Edelmira Garcia, from his garage in Corpus Christi, TX. MIRA’S Mending specialized in Embroidery and Silk-Screening for the area’s most popular restaurants and businesses, including H-E-B. During the first year, MIRA’S Mending expanded to sports teams, customizing uniforms for International-Westside Pony League, Universal Little League, and  Westside Little League.

In 1977, MIRA’S Mending Shop moved to Prescott and Gollihar, where services were expanded to include t-shirt heat-press.

MIRA’s moved to multiple locations on Ayers and ultimately found a long-time home and a new name. “MIRA’S Sportswear” opened it’s doors at the Port-Ayers Shopping Center in 1981. During that time, MIRA’S also added a location at Cullen Mall. A fire in 1985 at the Port-Ayers location forced MIRA’S to regroup and prioritize the Port-Ayers location, where the business continued to grow by servicing our local businesses and schools.

In 2001, the new owners, the children of Manuel and Edelmira Garcia; Mike Garcia and Sandie Morales, moved “MIRA’S Sports and More” to their newly constructed home at 6006 Ayers, where remains a staple as the most trusted name in uniform production and sporting goods.
