Academy Sports + Outdoors is an American sporting goods discount store chain. We carry a wide range of quality hunting, fishing and camping equipment, patio sets and barbecue grills, along with sports and recreation products, at everyday low prices.

History

The first Academy store opened as a tire shop in San Antonio in 1938. It turned into a military surplus store, then began offering sports and outdoors equipment as it evolved into the Academy Sports + Outdoors. They operate 259 stores in 16 states, supported by more than 20,000 team members throughout the South, Southeast, and Midwest.

It has corporate offices in the Katy Distribution Center in western Harris County, Texas, United States, near Katy and west of Houston. For 74 years it was a privately held company owned by the Gochman family, until its May 2011 acquisition by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co investment firm.

Community Relations
