8/20/19 – The new Academy in Bluebonnet Plaza is coming along quickly. They now have all the walls up and they are working on the front, at least that’s what we can see.
There’s also been a big change at the corner, there’s now an empty space where the Georgetown Feed Store used to be. You’ll remember that the owners sold their property and the building and have retired.
Here are a few new images of what’s going on currently at the location. Tap any image for larger view and slideshow.
7/16/19 – We went by to check the progress of the new Academy on Hwy 29 and look what we found. A building! Guess they are hurrying since they plan to open in October of this year.

Here’s the sign, tap for larger view. There was also another sign across the street about an Academy Sports Hiring Trailer that appeared to point behind the First Baptist Church, in case you are interested. On the sign pictured below it says to apply at www.careers.academy.com
We also have new info about the Georgetown Farm Supply, now located at the corner of the intersection, they will be going out of business.

Academy Sports + Outdoors – “At each of our 250+ locations, we carry a wide range of quality hunting, fishing and camping equipment, patio sets and barbecue grills, along with sports and recreation products, at everyday low prices. For all. For less.”
“The first Academy store opened as a tire shop in San Antonio in 1938. It turned into a military surplus store, then began offering sports and outdoors equipment as it evolved into the Academy Sports + Outdoors we know today.”
