Hibbett Sports to close 95 stores

Hibbett Sports, the Birmingham-based athletic retailer, is set to close 95 stores in the 2020 fiscal year. The company also plans to open 10 to 15 new Hibbett and City Gear stores. Hibbett acquired City Gear in 2018.  “While these decisions are never easy, we believe it is in the best interest of our shareholders as we continue to evolve the business and adapt to changing shopping patterns,” said Jeff Rosenthal, president and CEO.
