Bigger, Bolder Dick’s Sporting Goods Coming to Millcreek Mall
It’s a famous name in sporting goods that’s already a popular destination at the Millcreek Mall Complex. It is about to get even better. Construction is now underway on an all-new DICK’S Sporting Goods in a space formerly occupied by the Bon Ton department store. The new 60,000 square foot store is approximately 8,000 square feet larger than the current DICK’S location in the Millcreek Pavilion section of the complex. It will incorporate the newest generation of fixtures, designs and branding. The new store is tentatively scheduled to open in the summer of 2023.
Most notably, the new DICK’S also will offer a 20,000 sq. ft. outdoor turf field and running track attached to the store. When it opens later this year, it will host open play, fitness and sports clinics, and practices for athletes of all ages. In the winter months, the field will convert to an ice skating rink and offer open skate, skating lessons, stick and puck drills, and games. This new outdoor field/rink will also allow customers to “try out” new equipment before making their purchases.
The Millcreek Mall Complex is located on upper Peach Street and Interstate 79 in Millcreek Township, near Erie, Pennsylvania. It has been serving the community since 1975 and has been expanded and renovated numerous times, keeping it up-to-date with current regional mall uses, trends and occupancies. The complex currently comprises more than 2 million square feet of shopping, lodging, dining and entertainment. For more information, visit www.millcreekmall.net. Millcreek Mall Complex is owned and managed as part of the Cafaro family of companies, based in Niles, Ohio. To learn more about the Cafaro organization, go to www.cafarocompany.com.
