Academy Sports and Outdoors

Speaking of staying tuned…rumor has it that Texas based Academy Sports and Outdoors is planning a 60,000 square foot store at the site of the former Parker-Hannifin business on Wake Union Church Road.  At one point Weingarten had planned a shopping center, Wake Union Place.  Currently operating 200+ stores nationwide including one in Fayetteville this will give local shoppers a place to pick up hunting and fishing gear.  In addition the rumor mill has the rest of that land being used for townhouse and multi family buildings.  “Will be an interesting project to watch” according to Paul Eitel, owner of Focus Design Builders, Llc.
