Academy Sports to open in Greenville, Jacksovnille Friday


GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Academy Sports will hold its grand opening Friday in Greenville and Jacksonville.

The store sells from shoes, clothes, bikes, fishing equipment and more.

Store director Bob Arbrose said he’s excited to welcome the public into the 63,000-square-foot space.

“It gives us a lot more options, and we carry a lot of cool things,” said Arbrose. “Many that don’t sell at other locations we do carry here at Academy Sports, so I think you will find our store right in line of what customers are looking for.”

The company hired around 80 part- and full-time employees.

The stores will open 8:30 a.m. Friday morning.
