Sporting goods store opens in North Stafford

A sporting goods store has opened in part of the former Borders bookstore space at the Stafford Marketplace shopping center off Garrisonville Road.

Olympia Sports, a company based in Maine, opened about a month ago in a roughly 4,750-square-foot space. The company also has a store in Warrenton.

The Stafford store is next to a Party City location that leased the remaining roughly 12,400 square feet of the former Borders space.

Olympia filled the last vacancy at Stafford Marketplace.

Both of Borders' former Fredericksburg-area locations have now been fully occupied. Barnes & Noble opened last year in the former Borders store in Fredericksburg's Central Park shopping center.
