NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 8, 2017) – Opry Mills has added three new fitness apparel retailers to its store offerings: Champs Sports, Asics and New Balance Factory Store.

Champs Sports, a member of the Foot Locker, Inc., family, is the most recent opening at Opry Mills. Champs is one of the largest mall-based retailers specializing in athletic footwear and apparel in North America.

Asics, an international brand focusing on high-performance athletic footwear and apparel, opened in April. This location marks the only official Asics store in the Nashville area.

New Balance, a Boston, Mass.-based athletic retailer, is a global leader in the athletic industry with over 200 retail locations. This New Balance Factory Store, the only one in Middle Tennessee, offers footwear, apparel and accessories for men, women and children at discounted rates. It opened in March.

All three new retailers are located between the Food Court and Sun & Ski.

These new offerings join a host of other fitness-related retailers available at Opry Mills, including Under Armour Factory House and NIKE Factory Store.

“Opry Mills is excited to expand its fitness retail options for shoppers to enjoy,” said Paula Hankins, director of marketing and business development at Opry Mills. “The weather is warming up in Middle Tennessee, and our fitness retailers can help shoppers make sure they have comfortable and stylish apparel for outdoor activities.”
