Academy Sports opening Friday at North Lake

The developer of a large shopping complex on Dawsonville Highway announced Thursday the most recent business to sign on at the 200,000-square-foot site.

Home fashion department store HomeGoods will open a 20,000-square-foot location at North Lake Square, according to Tim Knight, developer and president of Knight Commercial Real Estate.

On the heels of the announcement is the grand opening Friday of North Lake’s Academy Sports + Outdoors. Store director Russ Hilsher said the the 62,000-square-foot Gainesville store “will be a great location for us. It was one of the first cities in Georgia where we wanted to break ground.”

Hilsher said Gainesville is the No. 1 city in Georgia with regard to the number of hunting and fishing licenses sold.

The business sells sports and outdoor gear, including firearms and fishing, camping, grilling and sports equipment.

“This is a location we’ve been wanting to open for nearly eight years now,” Hilsher said.

Friday’s grand opening event features a $150 “mystery gift card” giveaway to the first 150 customers in line at the store, located at 1140 Dawsonville Highway, Gainesville.

There will also be games and giveaways throughout the morning beginning at 8 a.m., as well as an opportunity to meet former Atlanta Brave Terry Pendleton from noon to 1 p.m.

Another grand opening at North Lake Square could be coming over the next several weeks for Chipotle — which was originally slated for a November opening.

Knight said HomeGoods will likely open in late spring of 2016.

Billing itself as “an off-price retailer,” the chain store features home furnishings such as furniture, rugs, china, linens and more. The store is owned by TJX Companies, which also owns apparel and home fashion stores T.J. Maxx and Marshalls.

Hobby Lobby was the first store to open at North Lake Square. The chain opened its 35th Georgia location on Dawsonville Highway in Gainesville, a 62,000-square-foot store that went into business in early October.

Gainesville mother charged with child cruelty after infant found bound in vehicle

A Gainesville woman was arrested Wednesday after a locksmith she called to unlock her car discovered a toddler in the back seat bound with cellophane and packing tape.

The child’s mother, Grace An, 18, was charged with first degree child cruelty, reckless conduct and false imprisonment.

According to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to the cul-de-sac of Ahaluna Drive north of Gainesville at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday in reference to a suspicious person or vehicle. As they arrived, they met with a locksmith, who told them he’d been called by someone locked out of a vehicle.

“The locksmith indicated that while he was unlocking the vehicle he discovered a small child bound by tape in the back seat,” the release stated.

When deputies arrived, they “found (the child) lying in the back seat with cellophane and packing tape wrapped around the child’s mouth, hands and feet.”

Deputies rescued the child and called for an ambulance. The toddler was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

The child was treated and released from the hospital and placed in the care of the Department of Family Children’s Services.

An was transported to the Hall County Jail, where she remains without bond. Further charges are anticipated, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
