SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — An 87-thousand square foot project will bring the Academy Sports and Outdoors retail shop to the queen city.
     
It's located right next to the Sams Club on South Campbell Avenue.
     
The developer of the 63 acre James River Commons is hopeful that with the new sporting retailer moving others will follow.
     
The tight economy has taken the blame for lack of development at the Commons.

"The weather warms, spring emerges and winter thaws, so is the economic constraints that have been on, at least commercial developments the last several years for obvious reasons." says Eric Olson of the Springfield Business Journal.

The Academy sports and outdoors retail shop is expected be completed and doors open by this fall.
