Academy Sports + Outdoors to relocate College Station store

New store will be located at Hwy. 6 & Northrup Grumman Rd.


KATY, TEXAS (October 27, 2016) – Academy, Ltd. (d/b/a Academy Sports + Outdoors), a premier sports, outdoor and recreation lifestyle retailer, announced plans to relocate its existing College Station store at 2351 Earl Rudder Fwy. to the intersection of Hwy. 6 & Northrup Grumman Rd. next year.

Academy Sports + Outdoors is known throughout its home state of Texas for its commitment to being the low price leader on its wide selection of casual and athletic footwear and apparel, team sports and golf products, patio sets, barbecue grills, along with hunting, fishing and camping equipment and gear at everyday low prices.

“Academy Sports + Outdoors has been a Texas tradition for over 75 years, and we’re thrilled to offer our loyal College Station customers a new location with an improved shopping experience and updated look and feel,” said Ken Attaway, Academy Sports + Outdoors executive vice president and chief operating officer. “We’re excited to continue serving as the everyday low price leader and as an active member of the College Station community.”

The new location will be nearly 72,000 square feet, will provide similar services to the existing College Station store such as scope mounting, bore sighting, line winding/spooling, propane exchange, racquet stringing, and will sell hunting and fishing licenses along with local team licensed apparel and novelty items.

A cornerstone of the Academy Sports + Outdoors philosophy is active community support and grassroots involvement throughout its footprint. The company has a history of giving back to local communities through partnerships with sports teams, youth organizations, and outdoor conservation programs. Locally, Academy Sports + Outdoors is the Proud Corporate Partner of Texas A&M Athletics, and also supports conservation groups including CCA Texas, Ducks Unlimited and National Wild Turkey Federation along with many local youth leagues.

Prior to the store opening, customers can shop academy.com, receive the digital version of the weekly ad, engage with Academy Sports + Outdoors through its social media sites, sign up for email and SMS text alerts, or visit our current College Station store.
