New Sports Store opened in far West Katy Texas
It appears that last Friday October 5, 2012 was the opening day for the brand new Academy Sports and Outdoors store. This new store is located in far west at FM 1093 and Spring Green Road on the northeast corner with its official address being 24970 FM 1093 Katy Texas 77494 281-371-1700. I knew this store was being built but I never saw any notice anywhere as to an opening date. Who knows I maybe writing the one of the first notice of its opening which in my mind is very sad.
I was out driving the various neighborhoods ( in the hood .. LOL) on Saturday October 6, 2012 and stumbled into the fact this store is now opened for business. I went and the facility is without question huge and loaded with sports equipment and apparel. They also advertise the facility as having an indoor archery range which I believe makes it pretty unique. I did buy a belt and a pack of low cut sports socks. I plan to go back no later than this weekend and buy a Mountain bike. The bike will be used hopefully by me to get some much needed exercise.
I am always very happy to see any new business open in the Katy Texas or surrounding area so many reasons. A store this size will provide new employment many folks and it is so convenient to get to and there is no measurable traffic for me to deal with. When I go to buy the bike I will take more time to look around. I would really like to see the archery range.Right next door a brand new Kroger Grocery Store is being built and I will wrte a blog when it opens.
