Ardmoreites have been following the developments across the city faithfully this year, with new restaurants and stores popping up all over town.
One highly anticipated addition, Academy Sports, now has an official groundbreaking and projected open date.
Ardmore City Manager JD Spohn said several new businesses will be officially announced soon.
“We’re anticipating several new additions with the Market Street location,” Spohn said.
The official groundbreaking ceremony has been set for 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at the 12th Avenue NW location.
