Another new retail store will be coming to Austin soon.

Hibbett Sporting Goods will open their second store in Minnesota in Austin after their first store in the state opened recently in Winona.

Ground breaking will take place soon near Wal Mart in Austin, next to Sun Tan City.

Contractors say they are just waiting for complete thawing of ground frost before construction can start on the 4,000 square foot facility.

A fall opening is planned for.

Hibbett is based in Birmingham, Alabama and owns more than 900 stores, most of them in the Midwest, Southeast and Atlantic regions of the US.

Among the brands featured in Hibbetts, Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Reebok and Mizuno.

New Store will have 8 employees
