MOORESVILLE – After a weather-related, one-week delay, Academy Sports + Outdoors will hold the grand opening for its Mooresville store Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Academy’s neighbor at the Brawley Crossing development, Costco Wholesale Center, is planning its grand opening for Wednesday starting at 8 a.m.
Academy Sports will give away T-shirts to the first 250 customers both days, and children can fish for free from the store’s Shakespeare “catch tank.”
Giveaways will include a six-burner outdoor gas grill, an eight-person tent, fishing equipment and store gift cards.
The widening of Talbert Road and improvements at the Talbert Road-Brawley School Road intersection are nearly complete. New traffic signals are in operation at the intersection of Talbert and Reed Creek roads.
