May '06
Sports conglomerate Nike Inc announced the official opening of its Nike Factory Store at the Arizona Mills Outlet Mall in Tempe, AZ.

Ed Stair, Nike Factory Store GM, said, "Nike is delighted to open our newest Factory Store at the Arizona Mills mall. We're pleased to be able to create new full- and part-time jobs and, through our community involvement, provide support to kids in the Tempe area.”

To celebrate the grand opening, Nike awarded a $5,000 cash and product grant the Boys and Girls Club of the East Valley -- Tempe Branch. The donation is a part of NikeGO, Nike's signature US community affairs initiative aimed at getting kids more physically active.

Michelle Duenas, Branch Executive, attended the grand opening ceremony and accepted the donation on behalf of the club.

"We are excited to receive this grant -- not only for how it will help our Club immediately, but also because of the long-term opportunities to partner and collaborate it will give us," Duenas said.

"Thank you for helping us fulfill our mission -- preparing youth and teens for a successful adulthood by helping them develop healthy bodies, minds and spirits and healthy self- esteem," he said.

The more than 13,000-square-foot retail outlet will employ 40 full- and part-time staff. It is located at 5000 S Arizona Mills Circle, Ste 240, Tempe, AZ 85282.

The Nike Factory Store at Arizona Mills will carry a wide selection of Nike branded footwear, apparel and equipment from past seasons. The majority of the product will be close-out or overrun product sold at a discount consistent with other stores at the center.

Nike's other Factory stores in Arizona include locations in Phoenix and Tucson.

Nike Inc, based near Beaverton, Oregon, USA is the world's leading designer, marketer and distributor of authentic athletic footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories for a wide variety of sports and fitness activities.
