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.

DICK’S Sporting Goods was founded in 1948 when an 18-year-old Dick Stack opened a bait-and-tackle shop in Binghamton, New York.  Today, DICK’S, headquartered in Pittsburgh, is the leading omnichannel retailer serving athletes and outdoor enthusiasts in more than 850 locations.  DICK’S Sporting Goods is also the parent company to Golf Galaxy, Field & Stream, Public Lands, Going Going Gone!, Warehouse Sale stores, online and the DICK’S mobile app. DICK’S also owns and operates DICK’S House of Sport, Golf Galaxy Performance Center and GameChanger, a youth sports mobile app for scheduling, communications, live scorekeeping and video streaming.  To learn more about this preeminent sporting goods retailer, visit online at www.dickssportinggoods.com.

Celebrating 45 big ones

On the morning of November 10, 1975, a large, excited crowd jammed into a new and unusual building just outside of Erie, Pennsylvania.  Local political leaders were on hand, along with Miss America Tawny Godin.  With the snip of a ribbon, they kicked off the Grand Opening for the new Millcreek Mall.  The five-day celebration was replete with entertainment, fireworks, professional athletes signing autographs and special sales from 140 stores like Kaufmann’s, Sears, JCPenney, Carlisle’s, Halles and the Boston Store.

Despite all the hoopla that November, Millcreek Mall had actually, quietly, opened its doors for business two months earlier.  That is why this September marks the 45th Anniversary of northwest Pennsylvania’s largest shopping destination.  To mark the occasion, the mall is offering a “thank you” gift to the many loyal guests who continue to visit:  Spend $250 and receive a vintage, commemorative Millcreek Mall t-shirt.  Shoppers should save their receipts from any combination of stores on the mall complex September 1 – 30.  Take them to the Customer Service Center to claim the limited edition t-shirt, while supplies last.

The Millcreek Mall Complex is located on upper Peach Street and Interstate 79 in Millcreek Township, near Erie, Pennsylvania.  Since its opening in 1975 it has been expanded and renovated numerous times, keeping it up-to-date with current regional mall uses, trends and occupancies.
