Dick’s Sporting Goods continues to expand its nationwide footprint and add new concepts to its store portfolio.
The country’s largest sporting goods retailer will open 11 stores in October, including six namesake locations, two combination Dick’s and Golf Galaxy locations and three Dick’s Sporting Goods Warehouse Sale clearance outlets. Following the October openings, the company will have 732 Dick’s Sporting Goods stores, 97 Golf Galaxy stores and 14 Warehouse Sale locations in 47 states. The expansion comes after a strong second quarter for Dick’s.
In addition, Dick’s will open a limited number of Soccer Shops, starting later this month. The shops, billed as “a new, elevated soccer experience,” will be located in select Dick’s Sporting Goods stores and promise a high level of service from in-store soccer experts trained to help customers find the equipment they need and the right fit.
The first Soccer Shop will open on Oct. 23, in Leawood, Kan. Additional shops are expected to open this November.
Dick’s also announced that it will host its first-ever loyalty appreciation week, "7 Days of ScoreCard,” for members of its ScoreCard loyalty program, beginning Oct. 5.
