Nike, the fitness apparel brand, holds its grand opening at the Fifth + Broadway development today, Thursday, May 26, according to a social media post by Fifth + Broadway.
The new store is located on the street level next to Ariat Boots, at 5046 Broadway Place, Nashville in the Fifth + Broadway development.
News of the opening was first reported last year by Nashville Business Journal.
Crissy Cassetty, director of economic development for the Nashville Downtown Partnership, told the Nashville Business Journal, “A brand like Nike coming to downtown Nashville further raises the ceiling of all the amazing brands we already have, and it has the potential to attract even more great retailers to the area,” Cassetty said. “We’ve always said that having a healthy mix of national, regional, and local retailers is our ultimate goal. A brand like Nike amplifies all of downtown Nashville’s economic development efforts.”
This is the first Live store in Tennessee, in addition to the Nike Factory Store in the Nashville area. Nike commissioned singer, songwriter, record producer, and graphic designer, Chaz Bear, known professionally as Toro y Moi to design a colorful mural on the exterior of the new Nike by Downtown Nashville store. Chaz participated in Nike’s Artist in Residency (A.I.R.) Program in 2020 and his artwork will grace the Live stores across the United States this year.
Hours on the Nike by Downtown Nashville website show stores hours are Monday – 10 am – 9 pm, and Sunday, 11 am – 7 pm.
Fifth + Broadway is also home to the first downtown Nashville Apple location, Justin Timberlake-backed The Twelve Thirty Club, Slim & Husky, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, Sixty Vines, Carhartt, and more.
