Fontana Sports to close west side store

Fontana Sports, a popular retail store for outdoor lovers, will close its Far West Side Madison location after 25 years of operation, according to an article in the Wisconsin State Journal.

While the Junction Road store will close by the end of March, owner John Hutchinson says Fontana’s downtown Madison store will remain open. Hutchinson and wife Judith are retiring but daughter Elizabeth Ganser is buying the business and will operate the downtown location.
