Sierra – an outdoor retailer – will open a store this month in Overland Park’s Bluhawk development.

The first location in the Kansas City area will open May 18 at 7951 W. 160th St., according to Alison Hayes, a company spokeswoman.

Sierra (formerly called Sierra Trading Post) sells sportswear, as well as equipment for hiking, hunting and camping. It has locations in several states such as Colorado, Utah, Illinois and Minnesota. The only other location in Kansas is in Wichita. There are none in Missouri.

The brand is owned by TJX Companies, which also owns TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Home Goods and Homesense.

The store will be the latest of several retailers to join the Bluhawk development in south Overland Park, which is home to Of Course Kitchen & Co., Magic Noodle, Cosentino’s Market and more.

A 40,000-square-foot sports park, the Advent Health Sports Park in Bluhawk, is being built nearby. The first phase of the sports park – 260,000 square meters of volleyball courts, basketball courts, artificial turf and an ice rink – will open this fall.

Sierra will join several other outdoor retailers in the market, including giant Bass Pro Shops, The North Face and Scheels.

Gearhead Outfitters recently took over the old Moosejaw space in Olathe at 686 N. Central St.
