Located in an outdoor, upscale mall right off I-40, The Streets at Southport is home to our Athleta Durham store. Athletic rivals Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill are a stone’s throw away, as is the soon-to-be-completed 22+ mile American Tobacco Trail that will allow runners, bicyclists and even horseback riders to take in the beauty of three counties. After you work up a sweat and take in the beauty of the area, be sure to stop by our store to meet our friendly, helpful Athleta family!
