An Amarillo staple for sporting goods will be closing its door to the public.  

Buck's Sporting Goods will be closing their doors as a public retail store.  A Buck's Sporting Goods has been in Amarillo since 1929 and the current owners have owned Buck's for 35 + years.

However, due to online sales and competition that have come into the city over the last 20 years, they have decided to close the retail portion of the business. The storefront will no longer be open to the public.

The store will be clearing out their remaining inventory and will be open to the public until December 31st.  After the new year, the store will continue to serve the 40 different school districts they currently work with, with uniforms and equipment.

They will also be downsizing and eliminating 16 positions.
