Dick's Sporting Goods opens first outdoor concept store
American sports equipment retailer Dick's Sporting Goods announced on Tuesday the opening of its first Public Lands store, a new outdoor-focused specialty concept, in Pittsburgh, PA.
Set to open on Sept. 24, at Cranberry Square, in the Pittsburgh suburb of Cranberry Township, the 50,000 square-foot store will focus on helping more people get outside to explore and protect America's public lands.
The new concept store will house an assortment of outdoor and lifestyle apparel, footwear, and equipment brands, and support the local outdoor community through conservation and access and equity-based initiatives. It will equally feature a 30-foot rock wall, an in-store gear repair and rental department and specialized shops dedicated to various outdoor activities including biking, camping, fishing, paddling, skiing, climbing, running and hiking.
Moreover, the new store concept will have an “elevated customer service experience," according to the company, that will rely on associates who are passionate about showcasing their love for the outdoors and believe in protecting public lands. All the while, one percent of all Public Lands sales will go back into local and national conservation efforts.
In other news, the retailer said it will also open one additional location of its off-price store concept — Going, Going, Gone! — this month. The store offers discounts up to 70 percent off on athletic footwear and apparel from brands carried at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
The company currently operates over 730 Dick's Sporting Goods locations across the United States. It is headquartered in Pittsburgh, and also owns and operates Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream specialty stores, as well as GameChanger.
