Academy is currently building a store In Greenville, TX and will be located at I-30 and Hwy 34. This store will be a great location for anglers to get what they need before heading to one of the many great fishing lakes nearby, mainly only if you're coming from the Metroplex (Tawakoni, Bonham, Fork, Cooper, and many more). While reading a previous forum topic recently, it was stated that this particular Academy will not have a large selection of fishing tackle and a lot of you stated that the store is in a prime spot to have a large selection of tackle....bass fishing specific. I live within 20 mins of the new store and I was excited about the Academy coming to town because they can have a very good selection of bass tackle and gear. But, when I heard about the store only planning on having a small fishing section with a small assortment of tackle and gear (bass specific), I began to research it more. I talked with Academy's corporate office and they said that the store will have a fishing section, but the stock will not be of a large selection. I explained to them that the location of the store is on a main thoroughfare to a lot of East Texas Fishing lakes and the concerns of the smaller fishing section doesn't allow for us to be able to "one stop shop" if we need a few specific things or a lot of different things (except for a few specific tackle shops I'll always still shop at near Lake Fork). They said if they begin to get inquiries about customers wanting a larger, well stocked fishing section with a good variety of baits, tackle, and gear, that they would highly consider making the change and making sure that the store is stocked with a large assortment of baits, tackle, and gear.
I was given an email address so that people could start contacting them about the new store and that we would like to see it have a good selection of fishing tackle (specifically bass fishing). So, if you're all for this particular Academy store having a larger fishing section with a good selection of baits, tackle, and gear, take a few minutes to email them and let them know what you would like to see in the new Greenville, TX Academy store.
