Nike representatives expected a good-size crowd to turn up for the new Lubbock store opening Monday, but they didn’t expect a customer to wait by the front door all morning.
“The Lubbock store was created to celebrate and fuel the area’s passion for sports by giving the community access to Nike premium products and services in a store that feels unique to the city,” said Dennis van Oossanen, vice president of Nike North America direct to consumer.

“Lubbock is kind of our stake in the ground to be present in West Texas,” Beachy said. “Lubbock represents so much when it comes to sports — this is the essence for sports. We’re a sports company, and I think (Lubbock) really embodies the brand, the heart and the grit out here.”
