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.
