About Academy Sports + Outdoors
Business at Academy Sports + Outdoors first got rolling–literally–in 1938, when it opened as a humble tire shop in San Antonio, Texas. As the years went on, the inventory grew along with the business. First stop? Military surplus supplies, which kept San Antonians’ feet dry in sturdy boots, possessions organized inside strong duffel bags, and outfits looking tactical-chic with plenty of camo print. But that wasn’t enough: Academy’s inventory soon grew large enough to warrant a new name: Academy Sports + Outdoors.
