Dick’s Sporting Goods will celebrate the opening of a new location on Friday, March 31, at Perimeter Pointe in Atlanta, Ga. This will be the retailer’s 686th Dick’s store in the nation and 21st in the state of Georgia.
The new location is the seventh former Sports Authority location that that company has converted and reopened as a Dick’s this year. The retailer says it brought approximately 90 jobs to the community through the hiring of full-time, part-time and temporary associates for the store.
The store will host their grand opening celebrations from Friday, March 31 through Sunday, April 2. Customers will receive the chance to win prizes throughout the weekend and meet special guest Atlanta Linebacker Deion Jones on Saturday, April 1.
