S.A.Elite - This is no ordinary athletic store. Its a smaller, more upscale retail concept from The Sports Authority. The new concept will sell many of the same brands currently sold at Sports Authority stores, including Nike, the North Face and Under Armour, but in a more luxury sort. Think limited edition and exclusive. S.A.Elite stores' size typically ranges from 12,000 to 15,000 square feet and take up residence in more posh shopping centers or free standing buildings.
The Northbrook Court S.A.Elite is opening near the AMC Theaters on the upper level. This is the first location in Illinois and the fifth location for the concept. The store is expected to be open later this year.
