As Sports Authory Stumbles, Dick's Sporting Goods Surges Ahead With 6 New Houston-Area Stores
Dick's Sporting Goods is making its grand entrance into the Houston market with six stores, including two that will feature Dick's, Field and Stream and Golf Galaxy all under one roof.
The Shoppes at ParkWest at 24600 Katy Fwy in Katy and Baybrook Mall at 1132 Baybrook Mall Drive in Friendswood have won the 105k SF specialty stores with three banner stores together.
Traditional single and bilevel stores will open in Deerbrook Mall, 20131 Hwy 59 N; First Colony Mall, 16535 Southwest Fwy, Sugar Land; The Woodlands Mall, 1201 Lake Woodlands Drive; and Willowbrook Mall, 2000 Willowbrook Drive. The stores range from 50k SF to 83k SF.
The Pittsburgh-based chain retailer has been steadily marching south, establishing a strong presence in North and Central Texas. "It's an opportune time to come into the Houston market to fill in the gap, with Sports Authority closing 11 stores in August," says NewQuest VP Matt Reed, the retailer's tenant rep.
