Academy Sports + Outdoors to relocate Southwest Military location

KATY, TEXAS (February 3, 2016) – Academy, Ltd. (d/b/a Academy Sports + Outdoors), a premier sports, outdoor and lifestyle retailer, announced plans to relocate its existing Southwest Military store at 165 S.W. Military Drive to the intersection of I-35 and Zarzamora St. later this year.

Academy Sports + Outdoors currently operates nine stores in San Antonio and 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 San Antonio tradition for over 75 years, and we’re thrilled to offer our loyal Southwest Military customers an improved shopping experience with an 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 San Antonio community.”

The new location will be nearly 63,000 square feet, will provide similar services to the existing San Antonio area stores 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 Official Sporting Goods Retailer of the San Antonio Spurs, 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, 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 any of the other San Antonio area stores.
