Academy continues store-opening March in Midwest


Katy, Texas -- Sporting goods retailer Academy Sports + Outdoors will continue its Midwestern expansion push with plans to open four new stores across Indiana and Kentucky later this fall.

The first two locations — Evansville, Ind., and Owensboro, Ky. — will mark Academy's entry into both states followed by the opening of stores in Louisville and Middletown, Ky., prior to the holidays.

In total, the four stores, set to start construction shortly, will generate approximately 575 jobs. The chain currently operates 172 stores.
