Hibbett Sports, one of the fastest growing sporting goods stores in the country, selected Method-1 interiors to create the lobby as wells as a museum to house sports memorabilia at their new corporate headquarters. Hibbett Sports has over 850 stores in 29 states. The headquarters features Hibbett Executive Chairman Mickey Newsome’s vast sports memorabilia collection.
Visitors to the building are met with an oversized reception desk that begins the strong sport theme that runs throughout the facility. The back wall of the reception area is covered with Method-1’s exclusive WallArmor™ product to provide a durable and appealing focal point behind the desk that is flanked with showcases. Current CEO Jeff Rosenthal and the current growing staff enjoy the Newsome’s collection in a museum type setting in their new 155,000 square foot facility. Display cases line the halls and accentuate this collection built over the years of Newsome’s tenure. In addition to the memorabilia, floor to ceiling sports graphics and inspiring quotes line the corridors.
The 600 square foot museum is located in the bank lobby and was constructed within the floor space of two loan offices and a customer waiting area. This very intimate exhibit includes a custom built introduction wall with graphics and a digital monitor, as well as five full size vertical artifact cases with sliding glass doors for accessibility. These cases include adjustable shelving, lighting and additional artifact storage. There is a credenza style artifact display case, a large wall hung display of civil war rifles, a smaller wall hung display case for swords and finally a large display case showcasing an impressive arrowhead collection.
