Dick’s Sporting Goods to Open in Queens

DICK’S Sporting Goods, the largest U.S.-based sporting goods retailer, will be opening five new stores during the second week in March, including a new location in the Glendale area of Queens.

In the Queens store, DICK’S will celebrate the grand opening of one of the former Sports Authority locations that the Company took over late last year. This will be the 678th DICK’S in the country and 41st in the state of New York. It will also be the retailer’s second location in New York City, the first of which opened on Staten Island in 2011.

Former Mets and Yankees great Daryl Strawberry will be at the grand opening of the DICK’s store in Queens during the weekend of March 10-12.

“We look forward to celebrating the grand opening of five new stores in three different states,” said Lauren Hobart, Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer, DICK’S Sporting Goods. “Having a presence in these cities will allow us to better-serve the athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who live there. These will be our first stores in Davenport and Queens, so we hope the community joins us for the celebrations that we have planned.”
