Prattville – One of the nation’s largest sporting good retailers, Academy Sports + Outdoors, launches its Prattville store with a soft opening on October 9.

The 75,000 square foot building is located adjacent to Hobby Lobby, and both stores are part of The Exchange at the intersection of U.S. 82 and Cobbs Ford Road.

The retailer has 118 stores (including Prattville) in 11 states and this one will be the 8th to open this year. John Hay, vice-president of real estate at Academy Sports, feels that there is a definite need for the store in the city.

“Prattville has been on the Academy Sports + Outdoors radar for quite some time,” Hay said. “We look for areas that show signs of a sustainable customer base, and we can tell that the people of Prattville will love what we have to offer.”

“Our large selection of quality outdoor, sports, and lifestyle products at everyday low prices will resonate well with people of all ages here in Prattville.”

Academy Sports offers sports, outdoors, and lifestyle enthusiasts of all ages a diverse selection of equipment, apparel, footwear, and lifestyle products at everyday low prices.
