San Antonio: Academy Sports + Outdoors takes a walk on the buy sideSan Antonio: Academy Sports + Outdoors takes a walk on the buy sidehttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=120132016-02-05T06:00:00Z2016-02-05T18:00:00Z

SAN ANTONIO - Even though it's just a short drive away from its current location along SW Military, the six-acre site at I-35 and Zarzamora packs a powerful punch for Academy Sports + Outdoors with its accessible, dynamic location and that it was available to buy rather than lease.

The sporting goods retailer will be moving its entire South San Antonio presence three miles westward to shift from its current lease model at 165 SW Military Dr.

At nearly 63,000 sf—a boost from the SW Military store's 59,000 sf—the new Alamo Crossing location will offer the same services, inventory and uniforms.​

Already turning dirt, Academy is going ground up on the vacant lot at 7503 S Zarzamora and will be joining other retailers in the Alamo Crossing shopping center such as Lowe's Home Improvement, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse.

According to a construction permit, work is expected to wrap up by April, and is estimated to cost about $1.5 million.
