CLIFTON PARK — The Olympia Sports store located in the Hannaford Plaza on Clifton Country Road is one of more than 70 store locations that will be closing by the end of the month.
The Maine-based athletic footwear and apparel chain was recently acquired by sports retailer JackRabbit, which will continue to operate the remaining 75 stores under the “Olympia Sports” banner. The company also operates an online store, which will continue as well.
The 76 closing stores, including the Clifton Park location, were not included in the acquisition. Ten people will lose their jobs when the store closes, according to the company.
In addition to the Clifton Park location, the Olympia Sports stores located in Delmar and Hudson will also close by the end of the month. All three are currently holding extensive going-out-of-business sales. According to the company, the sales involve the liquidation of $44 million worth of inventory.
Storewide discounts will be offered on all men’s, women’s and children’s sneakers, running shoes, basketball shoes, boots, joggers, sweatpants, hoodies, sweatshirts, long- and short-sleeved t-shirts, coats, socks and hats.
