Dick’s Sporting Goods opens location in Moore

NORMAN — Special appearances included in weekend store celebrations

Dick’s Sporting Goods opened multiple locations simultaneously in Moore, Midwest City and Oklahoma City this week and will celebrate with a weekend of grand opening festivities, starting with a ribbon cutting today.

“It’s an incredible store,” Moore City Manager Steve Eddy said. “They had a soft opening Tuesday evening. We went out and toured the store.

“We are very happy to have a store of this caliber and quality in our community and to provide a sporting goods store,” he said. “We haven’t had that kind of store here before.”

On Sunday, former Detroit Lions running back and Oklahoma State University alum Barry Sanders will meet and greet customers from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Dick’s in Moore, 760 SW 19th St.

Eddy said Moore is ready for the crowd.

“We’re very much convinced it will be very successful,” Eddy said. “Dick’s is a big deal, and it will be a regional draw from all over the south Oklahoma City metro.”

Dick’s is the largest U.S. based full-line sporting goods retailer, according to a press release issued this week to announce the opening of stores in Moore’s Fritts Farm, Town Center Plaza in Midwest City and Quail Springs and Westgate Marketplace in Oklahoma City.

Special store hours will be in effect through the weekend for all locations from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. today and Saturday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.

“We’re pleased to be opening four new Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Oklahoma City, which will enable us to better serve the needs of athletes in the community,” said Lauren Hobart, Dick’s Sporting Goods chief marketing officer. “With our unsurpassed customer service and the best equipment in the industry, we look forward to a strong presence in Oklahoma City.”
