Sports Authority Closing this Spring in Downtown Walnut Creek

1675 Olympic Blvd, Walnut Creek

Thanks to everyone for sending word that Sports Authority (previously S.A. Elite) is closing in downtown Walnut Creek this Spring in Plaza Escuela. According to USA Today, Sports Authority, “filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, citing $1.1 billion in debt and saying that its sales had slumped after it failed to keep up with consumer trends.” Look for liquidation sales to begin soon. According to an employee working in the Walnut Creek location the store should remain open for at least two to three months.
