Austin Canoe and Kayak (ACK) is opening a store in northwest San Antonio, its fifth location.

The grand opening will take place over the weekend of Feb. 8 and 9. The new store is in addition to the current Austin, San Marcos, Houston and Spring locations.

“We have been eyeing the San Antonio market for a long time and all those loyal customers that have been driving up to our San Marcos location now can get all their kayaking and outdoor gear much closer to home,” said Chris Hackerd, MSP Holdings VP of store operations. “This store will also expand our reach farther south as we get closer to the coast and into the region where there are a lot of outdoor activities.”

ACK San Antonio is located at 12746 Cimarron Path, Ste 152, just off I-10, south of 1604. The 5,000 square-foot store will host an expansive selection of kayaks, stand up paddle boards, camping and other outdoor adventure gear along with associated services and events. It will also house the store-in-a-store concept RackBoys featuring a full line of car rack components and accessories.

The location was selected through in-depth market research showing a healthy and active lifestyle community interested in the great outdoors. The store is slated to officially open its doors February 7th 2014 with the grand opening celebration the following weekend.

ACK and RackBoys are divisions of Austin-based MSP Holdings LLC.
