McKINNEY (WBAP 24/7 News) - One of the largest triathlon retail stores in the United States plans to open its second North Texas location in May.
Dallas-based Playtri Performance Center will open a 10,908-square-foot retail store in Times Square at Craig Ranch in McKinney. The store will sell bikes, gear and tools for amateur athletes training for the Olympics or triathlons.
The athletic store also has on-site coaches and sports nutritionists.
The company says it already has many clients in the area and stages many events in Collin County, which was a key factor in its decision to locate in McKinney.
Texas has the most triathletes in the country, and the Dallas-Fort Worth area has the largest concentration in the state, according to Playtri officials.
