Academy Sports stocks up for Hanna

VICTORIA, Texas — As tropical storm Hanna continues to churn towards the Texas coast, Academy Sports and Outdoors is stocking up on supplies the community might need in storm-like conditions.

“We’re getting all of our rain gear, so like head to toe, tons of umbrellas, our rain boots,” said Victoria operations manager Allyssa Rosales. “Just anything that you would need in the event of a big storm or a shutdown of electricity or something like that.”

In addition to rain supplies, the company says it has weather radios, batteries, portable chargers and first aid kits in stock as well. Rosales says they’ve ramped up their buying in recent days in anticipation of the storm.
