Dick’s Sporting Goods announced the grand opening of seven new locations, including its second Dick’s House of Sport in Knoxville, TN on June 4, one relocated Dick’s Sporting Goods, two newly redesigned Golf Galaxy locations, and three Warehouse Sale locations.

The retailer also announced additional experiential in-store Soccer Shops to another 47 stores in June.

The location is at West Town Mall, at 7600 Kingston Pike. The grand opening runs from June 4-6. Earlier this year, the company opened its first Dick’s House of Sport location in Victor, NY.

Redesigned Golf Galaxy stores will open in Salt Lake City, UT at 6148 South State Street and in Houston at 5078 Richmond Avenue. The updated stores will provide access to TrackMan and BioMech Golf technologies, hitting bays and custom fittings. The grand opening runs from June 5-6.
