Dick's Sporting Goods is closing its 75,000 square foot return center in Conklin, NY in a move to reduce expenses for rent and freight. A spokesman told WBNG News in Binghamton that the warehouse will close by March 31 and twenty jobs are affected.


Some employees have been offered jobs at other Dick's stores. According to its 10K, damaged or defective merchandise being returned to vendors is consolidated for cost efficient return at this return center.
