The stores are set to open on Aug. 13.

Sports Authority will open six stores in five states on Aug. 13.


The six stores are located in Miami, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Chicago and Milwaukee. The six stores join the 465 Sport Authority stores already in operation across 45 states.


As part of the openings, the retailer will make donations to local sports organizations in the states where the new stores are located.


David Campisi, president and chief executive officer, said, “Sports Authority truly believes in celebrating the good in sport and with these new locations, Sports Authority is not only helping local job creation, but providing great value and service to athletes and organizations in these communities.”
