A Sports Authority store at 1301 N. Milwaukee St. in Boise is closing in late July or early August as the chain goes through bankruptcy.

The store will have a going-out-of-business sale until it closes, with markdowns over the next month or two.

The Boise Sports Authority has more than 20 employees, according to a staff member.

The Colorado-based company currently is going through bankruptcy proceedings. It failed to find a buyer and recently began closing all of its more than 450 stores.

Sports Authority has four stores in Idaho, but the Boise location is the only Treasure Valley store.
