Southlake will be home to one of three newly announced PGA Tour Superstores set to open later this year and more than double the company’s retail footprint.
The Southlake location will be at the southwest corner of Southlake Boulevard and Kimball Avenue, becoming the state’s third location. Two stores currently operate in Plano.
The golf retailer plans to add one million square feet of new golf retail space in the next five years, with other stores planned in Orlando, Fla. and Scottsdale, Ariz.
“Despite a flat retail landscape in the golf industry, we have growth plans that prove experiential retail is alive and well,” said Dick Sullivan, company president, in a news release.
The company’s retail presence is expected to rise by 25 percent year year in the next five years, Sullivan said.
PGA Tour Superstore currently has 19 retail stores ranging from 40,000 to 50,000 square feet per store. Each store features up to 14 custom-fitting simulators and practice bays. The retailer plans up to 50 locations by 2018.
PGA TOUR Superstore, operated by Golf & Tennis Pro Shop Inc., is a subsidiary of AMB Group LLC. More information is available at www.pgatoursuperstore.com.
