Academy Sports + Outdoors Expands Headquarters


Academy Sports + Outdoors is expanding its headquarters in Katy, Tex., and will move into its new building in early 2015, according to a June 30 story in the Houston Business Journal. The new 200,000-square-foot building and six-story parking garage will join Academy's current corporate office and distribution center on land it bought in 1990. Approximately 2,900 employees work at the corporate office and distribution center.

"We have outgrown our current office space, and this expansion project will support our growth for the next several years," Academy Executive Vice President and COO Ken Attaway told HBJ.

Academy has 26 stores in the Houston area and plans to open another by the end of 2014.
