Academy Sports to open in Village at Sandhill

Mar 25, 2011 6:45:00 AM - thestate.com
Academy Sports & Outdoor will open a 71,000-square-foot store in Northeast Richland’s Village at Sandhill this fall, company spokeswoman Elise Hasbrook said.

The sporting goods and outdoor living retailer will hire 150 workers for the store after construction begins this spring. (Look for a hiring trailer on site.)

The store – which will be at 730 Fashion Drive, kitty-corner from Sandhill Station — will sell sporting goods, such as running shoes and football uniforms. But it also will carry outdoor living items, such as patio furniture and gas grills. Pools, camping equipment, kayaks and boating supplies round out the inventory.

“It’s a broad assortment of products,” Hasbrook said.

The Katy, Texas-based retailer confirmed a year ago that it was looking at sites in the Columbia area. Last month, it put up a billboard outside the entrance to the sprawling Sandhill shopping center, saying is was “coming soon.”
