About Whitie Bensen Athletic Equipment, Inc.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Frank ‘Whitie’ Bensen began his business in 1965 selling hockey equipment out of the trunk of his car. Since that time, the business he founded -- now run by his son, Kyle Bensen -- has occupied several locations throughout the city of West Haven, Connecticut. Since the mid-1990s Whitie Bensen Athletic Equipment has been located at 38 Saw Mill Road -- nearby the West Haven Train Station -- and has expanded over the years to occupy nearly half the shopping plaza!
