Store Opens March 16, 2012 – 2468 Cross Pointe Dr. (at Red River Rd.) Rock Hill, SC 29730. Store Hours Mon-Sat 8am-10pm, Sun 9am-8pm
Sports fans are you ready for a new sporting goods store in Rock Hill? Development company Warren Norman Co, Inc, announced it has signed a lease for a new 71,829 sq ft Academy Sports + Outdoors. The new sporting goods store will be located at a new shopping center called High Point Crossings at the corner of Dave Lyle Blvd and Red River Road.
The talks and negotiations between the Developer and Academy began over 4 years ago. The lease singing secures a major anchor tenant for the new 40 acre, 225,000 retail square footage development with a projected real estate value when the center is completed at over 35 million dollars.
Academy Sports + Outdoors is a sports, outdoor and lifestyle retailer with a huge assortment of hunting, fishing and camping equipment and gear along with sports and leisure products, footwear, apparel and more. The Texas-based company operates over 135 stores throughout Southeast and lower Midwest including;
Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
The Rock Hill Academy store will be their first store in the greater Charlotte region. The projected construction completion of the Academy store is estimated to be February 2012.
I am excited for 2 reasons. One, it’s nice to hear about a development project moving forward during this stale economy. Two, I have shopped Academy’s in their home city of Houston and think the stores are great and items are priced to be very competitive in the market.
A job posting for a Manager’s position for this location was posted on the Academy website in early July.
