Sports Authority coming to Culpeper

For folks wondering was going in next to T.J. Maxx in the Dominion Square Shopping Center, the wait is over. Workers were busy putting up the red and white logo announcing that Sports Authority will be opening soon.

From the sound of it, there is work going on inside the store which is planned to open in October. It’s part of a new plan that Sports Authority has to open smaller stores in rural communities. According to a spokesperson, about 10 are planned by year’s end in other similar communities around the country.

This one, at roughly 12,000 square feet, will be smaller than the usual ones which average around 45,000 square feet and it won’t carry the full inventory line as the larger stores. Stay tuned as more details become available.
