Sports Authority will close all 460 of its stores, with clearance sales running through the summer. The Englewood, Colorado-based company said it will start discounting sneakers, clothing and other goods this week, likely running sales until the end of August.

The company told the bankruptcy court that it plans to sell its store leases in an upcoming auction.
