Signed copies of footballers' shirts are one of the shop's main items
Sportizus Ltd, based in Canley, began trading in 1999 and has a £5m turnover. The first shop was in Warwick. Nineteen have opened nationally since.
The stores specialise in sporting mementoes as well as political and celebrity memorabilia. A total of 80 people are employed in the business.
An advert for the sale of the company was put in a national paper last week.
