locations are expected to close after failing to find a bidder in a
bankruptcy auction last month, according to court documents
This includes the Gillette location in the Powder Basin Shopping Center on
Sports Authority announced that they would only close 140 store locations
in early March after the company was reportedly $1.1 billion in debt.
However, reorganizing under bankruptcy protection was no longer an option
and the company auctioned itself off, according to national reports.
As of Tuesday afternoon, no 'store closing' signs are up, but close-out
sales at all Sports Authority stores are expected to start Thursday, May
26th, and go no later than August 31.
Managers at the Gillette location have yet to receive word from the company
handling liquidation sales. The store will be losing a handful of jobs as a
result of the closing.
