    Sporting goods chain Sports Authority filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, and now we know which stores will be shuttered as a result.
    The company, which has 450 stores, filed a court document that lists the 143 locations that are closing in 27 states. 3,400 of their 15,000 employees will be laid off.


    Texas is the state that will be the hardest hit, with 24 Sports Authority storefronts slated to go dark.




    Good bye one of my favorite sports stores. When the internet takes control of everything, are the roads going to empty? :nooo:

    I haven't needed a set of cleats, a baseball bat, a football, a pitchback, basketball goal, or had the desire to wear another grown man's jersey in decades, so this doesn't surprise me.

    I think all I've ever bought there was some running shoes a few times. I can get those elsewhere easily enough.

    I was at a small mall today that is getting totally revamped. One of the big corner stores is still under construction and has a big red front area.

    I asked a salesperson next door what was going in and she said a Sports Authority.

    Apparently the builders know Sports Authority is going into bankruptcy, but we're told to keep building until further notice.

    :confused:
