Dick's Sporting Goods Columbus OH

Dick’s Sporting Goods started off with an honest vision and an attitude to never give up. Never giving up is an important approach in sports and Dick’s is all about sports. 18-year-old Richard Stack worked at an Army/Navy store and at the owner’s request he explored the idea of expanding the product line to include fishing and camping supplies. The owner rejected his suggestions, telling him he would never make a good merchant. That night he went to his grandmother’s house quite disappointed and she lifted his spirits, told him to never give up on his dreams and gave him $300 dollars to start Dick’s Sporting Goods in 1948.

Dick's Sporting Goods

Customer loyalty helped business grow into two stores and the product line expanded to include general sports merchandise. Richard Stack retired in 1984 and his eldest son, Edward Stack took over. Edward Stack took the business to another level with an aggressive drive that included many acquisitions. By 1994 Dick’s Sporting Goods had 40 stores and the headquarters office was moved to Pittsburgh, PA in preparation for a national rollout. In October of 2002 the company went public on the NYSE under DKS.

Today there are 419 Dick’s Sporting Goods in 40 states. In 2007 they acquired Golf Galaxy Inc and now own 91 Golf Galaxy stores in 31 states. Dick’s Sporting Goods is successful because they cater to the serious sports and outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy the big selection (over 27,000 different items), superior service (knowledgeable employees) and their stores within stores concept that includes a Golf Shop, Lodge (camping-hunting-fishing) and Perfect Season (shop tailored to all seasonal sports items) all inside a family-friendly environment.
