After opening its first three DICK’S House of Sport stores in Rochester, New York, Knoxville, Tennessee, and Minnetonka, Minnesota, DICK’S Sporting Goods plans to add more than 12 new locations in the next two years.
The decision to expand the House of Sport brand comes following incredible responses from athletes, vendors, and the local communities.
DICK’S House of Sport is a 100,000+ square foot store that provides athletes with an incredible assortment of products along with in-store experiences including a climbing wall, multiple golf bays with TrackMan simulators, and multi-sport cages that can be used for baseball, softball, lacrosse and soccer and give athletes an opportunity to try product while measuring and tracking their performance. House of Sport stores also focus on deep integration with the local community through partnerships and events. Some locations have a field attached to the store that can be used for open play, clinics, league space or as an ice rink in the winter.
“DICK'S House of Sport is redefining sports retail,” said Lauren Hobart, President and CEO of DICK’S Sporting Goods, on DICK’S Sporting Goods’ 2022 Q4 earnings call in March. “It is an experience that fosters deep community involvement that goes well beyond traditional retail and has become a destination where athletes can fuel their passions.”
