Dick's Sporting Goods will expand its nationwide footprint with the grand opening of its first Public Lands store in Pittsburgh on September 24. The retailer will also open one additional location of its off-price store concept -- Going, Going, Gone! in September. These new additions will bring approximately 120 jobs.
Public Lands, a new outdoor-focused specialty concept, will focus on helping more people get outside to explore and protect America's public lands. It will carry a premium assortment of outdoor and lifestyle apparel, footwear, and equipment brands, and support the local outdoor community through conservation and access & equity-based initiatives. Located approximately 20 miles north of Pittsburgh, the 50,000 sq. ft. store will 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. This new store concept will have an elevated customer service experience that will rely on associates who are passionate about showcasing their love for the outdoors and believe in protecting our public lands for all to enjoy. Furthermore, one percent of all Public Lands sales will go back into local and national conservation efforts.
Public Lands will host a ribbon cutting ceremony to kick off their opening weekend celebrations. Visit PublicLands.com/Pittsburgh for full details on the Grand Opening.
