Can naming our eSports organization similar to a retail store result in copyright issues?

I am apart of an eSports organization called "5 Below". There is also an American store called "Five Below". We were wondering if this would be an issue in regards to the copyright?

In order to avoid issues between yourselves and a similarly branded store, the most straightforward solution would likely be to trademark your organization's name in Canada and also the United States, if you plan to operate there.
