Pittsburgh-based sports equipment retailer Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced plans to open two new namesakes Dick’s Sporting Goods stores and two Golf Galaxy locations before the end of March. The upcoming Dick’s Sporting Goods stores will open in Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Hamilton Place Mall and Valley Mall in Hagerstown, Maryland.
The Chattanooga location is set to host its opening weekend celebrations March 7 through 8, while the new Hagerstown store will open on the weekend of March 21.
The two new Golf Galaxy stores will open in Devon, Pennsylvania’s Swedesford Plaza and Warwick, Rhode Island’s Warwick Mall, and both have celebrations planned for their openings on the weekend of March 14.
Visitors to the stores will be able to shop Dick’s Sporting Goods’ range of private-label brands, which include DSG, Tommy Armour, Calia by Carrie Underwood, Field & Stream and Fitness Gear, as well as big-name brands such as Nike, Adidas, and The North Face.
The new openings will bring the company’s store count up to 727 Dick’s Sporting Goods locations and 96 Golf Galaxy stores, and are expected to collectively provide 120 jobs to their local communities.
The announcement of the new stores follows a string of openings in October of last year, which saw the company add seven new locations to its brick-and-mortar network.
In the third quarter ended November 2, 2019, Dick’s Sporting Goods reported net income of $57.6 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.96 billion, up 5.6% from the prior-year period.
