US-based DICK’S Sporting Goods is set to open seven new stores, including its second ‘DICK’S House of Sport’ this month, continuing its expansion nationwide.
As part of this expansion, the retailer will unveil Dick’s House of Sport at West Town Mall in Knoxville, Tennessee on 4 June.
The new experiential store will feature a 24,000ft² outdoor turf field and running track, a rock-climbing wall, HitTrax technology equipped batting cage, golf hitting bays with TrackMan simulators and more.
The new store will also offer athletic and outdoor apparel brands, a wide range of footwear, gear for team sports, and advanced equipment for golf and fitness.
The second Dick’s House of Sport comes two months after the company debuted the store concept in Victor, New York.
In addition to this, Dick’s will unveil three Warehouse Sale stores, two newly redesigned Golf Galaxy locations, a relocated Dick’s Sporting Goods store, and in-store soccer shops.
