An Alabama-based sporting goods store is coming to Perry.
Hibbett Sporting Goods Inc. plans to open a Hibbett Sports store at 1365 Sam Nunn Blvd. by late March, according to a company news release. It expects to employ about eight full- and part-time workers.
Hibbett currently has stores in Macon, Centerville, Warner Robins, Dublin and Milledgeville.
“People in Perry take their sports seriously, and we plan to give them the sporting goods products and know-how they’ve been looking for,” Hibbett President and CEO Jeff Rosenthal said in the release.
Hibbett Sporting Goods operates more than 950 full-line sporting goods stores in small- to mid-sized markets, most of them located in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest. Its stores offer athletic equipment, footwear and apparel. Stores in each market also specialize in localized apparel and accessories.
