Hibbett Sports coming soon to Floresville
Hibbett Sporting Goods Inc., an Alabama-based sporting goods company operating as Hibbett Sports, is pleased to announce that its newest Hibbett Sports store will be opening the end of May or early June in Floresville, employing approximately eight full- and part-time team members. The business is just one of three business to be located in the strip mall known as Tiger Place, off U.S. 181 in front of Walmart supercenter.
Announcing the opening, Jeff Rosenthal, president and CEO of Hibbett Sporting Goods Inc., said, “We’re thrilled to be opening a new store in Floresville. People in Floresville take their sports seriously, and we plan to give them the sporting goods products and know-how they’ve been looking for.”
The company’s primary store format is Hibbett Sports, a 5,000-square-foot store located in dominant strip centers and enclosed malls.
Hibbett Sports stores offer a large selection of quality athletic equipment, footwear, and apparel, with a focus on knowledgeable, friendly customer service, offering customers information they can’t always get at other stores selling sports products. The company features an expansive selection of brand-name merchandise, with an eye toward meeting the needs of the team and individual sports participants. Another priority is offering localized apparel and accessories so that a wide range of customers within each market will be able to find just what they’re looking for.
Hibbett Sports has a long history of focusing on the needs of local teams and leagues, providing a variety of services to meet the needs of coaches and players alike.
Hibbett Sporting Goods Inc. is the only sporting goods chain committed to serving small markets. Keeping costs low while keeping customers happy has proved to be a successful goal for Hibbett Sports as the company continues to successfully expand its number of stores across the United States.
According to Rosenthal, since Hibbett Sporting Goods Inc. began in 1945, the focus has been on serving the local community. “No matter how many stores we open, we don’t lose sight of the fact that every town we serve is a hometown.”
