Big Bucks Sports in Hattiesburg going out of business

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Big Bucks sports off South 40th will close its doors in mid-July.

Owners said the poor economy as well as competition from bigger chain stores led to the decision.

That competition is only going to increase with the announcement Academy Sports is moving to Hattiesburg and will build a 60,000-square-foot facility on Highway 98 in west Hattiesburg.
