Academy Sports + Outdoors reported last year that it would open 15 to 17 new stores in fiscal 2024. The retailer is making good on that forecast in its fiscal first quarter, starting with two new store openings in Knightdale, NC, and Greenwood, IN. 

The grand opening for Academy’s Knightdale store took place on March 22-24, while the Greenwood store will host a grand opening on April 12-14.

“Academy Sports + Outdoors is excited to provide our customers with new convenient stores that carry a localized assortment that meets the needs of active families in these communities,” said Eric Friederich, senior vice president of Retail Operations at Academy Sports + Outdoors. “We’re looking forward to helping our loyal customers in Knightdale and Greenwood get to the fun faster and continue to be their destination for the top brands and the lowest prices at these new locations.”
