Windward Mall is pleased to announce that Sports Authority will become one of their new anchor stores. The national sporting goods retailer will open its first location on the Windward side in time for the 2012 holiday season. Sports Authority will move into a 26,657-square-foot space that formerly housed Borders.
“Sports Authority is a great fit for Windward Mall and complements our current retail mix,” said Alex Kirley, marketing manager at Windward Mall. “Windward residents are extremely active and athletic, and now they will have an even wider selection of athletic apparel and sports equipment close to home.”
Sports Authority currently has five locations in Hawaii with a new location in Hilo planned for later this summer making the Windward Mall location number seven in the state. Sports Authority will make announcements regarding hiring and grand opening events in the near future.
