Another new business is coming to the City of Georgetown.
Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. has announced it will be opening in the Georgetown Plaza across from Walmart and will provide jobs to eight full- and part-time workers.
“We’re thrilled to be opening a new store in Georgetown. People in Georgetown take their sports seriously, and we plan to give them the sporting goods products and know-how they’ve been looking for,” said Jeff Rosenthal, president and CEO of Hibbett Sporting Goods.
Based in Alabama, Hibbett has 800 full-line sporting goods stores in small to mid-sized markets, most of them located in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.
The company’s primary store format is Hibbett Sports, a 5,000-square-foot store located in dominant strip centers and enclosed malls.
Hibbett Sports stores offer a large selection of quality athletic equipment, footwear and apparel, with a focus on knowledgeable, friendly customer service, offering customers information they can’t always get at other stores selling sports products, according to a press release.
The company features an expansive selection of brand name merchandise, with an eye toward meeting the needs of the team and individual sports participants.
According to Rosenthal, since Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. began in 1945, the focus has been on serving the local community.
“No matter how many stores we open, we don’t lose sight of the fact that every town we serve is a hometown,” he said.
