AUSTIN - Sports Authority has filed for bankruptcy and will close dozens of stores nationwide, including its only Austin location.
As many as 140 stores total—many of them in Texas—could be shuttered, the sporting goods chain said. Sports Authority currently has 463 stores.
The Austin store is at 9600 S. I-35 in the Southpark Meadows shopping center.
The 42,010-sf store, which has a lease that runs through January 2019, is already being marketed.
A&G Realty Partners has been enlisted to sell the leases for many of the stores closing, including the one in Southpark Meadows.
