Dick’s Sporting Goods will expand its national footprint with the opening of six Dick’s Sporting Goods stores, two combination Dick’s and Golf Galaxy locations and three Dick’s Sporting Goods Warehouse Sale locations in October. The retailer will also open a limited number of Soccer Shops, a new, shop-in-shop experience, starting later this month and host its first Loyalty Appreciation Week beginning October 5.
