The largest U.S.-based sporting goods retailer will open the sporting goods store and the outdoor equipment store under the same roof, which expands the retailer's ability to serve both athletes and outdoor enthusiasts in the community, according to a company press release. The new stores will carry a wide range of apparel, equipment and accessories, including offerings from exclusive brands such as CALIA by Carrie Underwood, Field & Stream and Walter Hagen.
“We’re excited to offer Austin, and in-particular, the Cedar Park community, two great stores in one location,” said Lauren Hobart, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for DICK’S Sporting Goods. “The rich history of sports and outdoor traditions in this market provide us with a great opportunity to serve the community in a way only we can."
This will be the 677th Dick's store and 29th Field & Stream store to open nationwide and the 33rd Dick's store and third Field & Stream store to open in Texas. There are three other DICK's Sporting Goods locations in the Austin area.
The stores will host grand opening celebrations March 3-5. Customers will get the chance to win prizes and meet special guests throughout the weekend, according to the release.
