Dick's Sporting Goods History

Dick’s Sporting Goods was founded in 1948 by then 18 year old Richard “Dick” Stack in the form of a small bait & tackle shop.

In the mid 1950s, the store began selling general sports merchandise.  In the early 60s, the first Dick’s Sporting Goods store was opened.

The store flourished and a second location was opened in Vestal, New York.

Dick Stack retired in 1984 and his son Eddie, the current CEO, took over the business.

The chain expanded quickly under Eddie.  They began opened more stores across Upstate New York in the 1990s.

In 1994, the Dick’s Sporting Goods corporate office was moved from Binghamton, NY to Corapolis, Pennsylvania.

Today, the company operates over 450 stores in 42 US states.

Yesterday afternoon I returned 2 items to Field and Stream in Cranberry Twp.PA, a new branch of stores from Dick’s Sporting Goods. I wanted to return 2 kayak cockpit covers that were too small for my kayaks….could not find the receipt in the bag at the time or return. I knew that they could either look it up on the credit card I used or give me store credit at lowest recent sales prices. Both were $30 each and price tag right on the items. Girl at counter scanned them and computer said they could only give me .99 cents for each. Girl was very nice and agreed that something was wrong, said there is no way it would be right to just reimburse me .99 cents. I told her there is now way that was correct. She called back to that Dept. They looked up the price and she agreed that was the price on the items. Got no where with whomever she was talking to on the phone…scanned again, still of course said the same, so she called for any manager to come up to help. A young man appeared and asked what was up…she then explained what happened and he matter of factly said “Well apparently, this is the lowest price these were listed at once.” I said REALLY? Marked down from $30 to .99 cents?”
Told him that was unheard of! He stuck to his story and then proceeded to tell me that they probably were listed on clearance last year.
I then told the young lady to scan the credit card I used as it would show my purchase and she apologized and said she forgot that they can do that as well. All that trouble and bullish story could have been avoided. After scanning my credit card that I had used to purchase they could see that I had bought them only days earlier and showed that I paid over $60. She credited it to my account.
There was a store employee outside who had come in once as he saw that I had been still waiting to return these and asked if he could assist but of course by then the girl had asked for manager to come. When I left the store the same guy asked if I got everything squared away and told him what the young manager had told me…he gave me that look and said “There is now way we would ever have something marked down that low. ” I think he too was embarrassed of his own fellow employees. What gripes me is this guy really thought I was going to buy that story? How dumb does he think I am?
I don’t think I will ever be back to that store again! And to think these people run the store! SCARY! I may also even cancel my Dick’s Sporting Goods Credit Card. Just very sad that they hire these people to be managers.
Yes, I did share this to FB and it was not pretty…got plenty of responses from people who were in disbelief of this incident.

Dicks sporting good have over complicated coupons that are two paragraphs long about what the do not offer on there discounts. What the should do is offer the three or four items that are on sale in there store with the coupon. VERY Bad YOU HAVE LOST ME AND MANY OTHERS DUE TO YOUR PATHETIC COUPONS

Very frustrated

Was in the irvine store trying to buy a Enduracool towel. Had the product in my hands only to be told they could not sell it to me as they did not have the packaging. They offered to see if the other store 20miles away carried it. It only a $15-20 item. Not worth driving that far.

Much better service at the Huntington Beach store. They would have looked up the SKU and sold it to me. I will avoid the Irvine Store in the future

Hello, to whom this should concern.. I on occasion buy a variety of different sporting goods at your Monaca Pennsylvania store. I went there today to have a spool filled with monofilament line on a baitcaster reel. Wow,. I was treated so badly by “Greg” ( employee of yours ) I wonder if I will ever return. First, I waited for said employee to show up after setting off the pager in store ,. then he said he was busy helping another customer first,.. and walked away. Ten minutes later I strolled over to see if I could find him,. only to see he wasn’t helping anyone but instead was walking around in a closed room not really doing anything,.. I decided to stand there for awhile and see how long this invisible customer would take,. shortly thereafter he came back to the counter,.. I asked if it was going to be much longer,. he stated he had to wait on the customers as he received them,. I looked around and said I’m the only one here. He got upset and almost dropped my brand new reel and he definitely was hostile. Then he took reel away to another room saying he didn’t think he could fill it,. another how many minutes went by,. wow.. 5..10 ?? I went to look for monofilament to put on it,. he returned stating he couldn’t do it because,. a “T” bar they use for filling it was missing.. really?? when I ‘asked if I could string it myself he said ” SURE” just tie it on the reel.. But I don’t have this magic T bar,.. so instead,.. I will buy from Gander Mountain and they will willing string it on my reel. Please understand I wanted a service , and was willing to pay for it,. the question is ..why is an employee turning away business. ??

To; Energy Group
I do work going around to different companies and try to save them energy and in turn save them money on their bottom line. I have noticed and talked with a couple of store managers about the use of 250-400 watt Metal Halides High Bay light fixture that Dick’s use in your stores. There are many new or retrofit solutions. I would be happy to discuss with you. Please E-mail me at dleathe@absddc.com
Thank you for your time. Look forward to speaking with you soon.

I shop at the Brunswick store a lot. Have been since it opened. But over the past month, service has been horrible. But that isn’t the reason why I am writing this comment. The manager that is there now has crossed the line. He was too friendly with my wife. She told me that she is NEVER going to shop there again. I don’t know what happened, but she was very upset. She remembers the old manager and she liked her. But she said that this new manager crossed the line and made her feel violated. So, here’s where I say, good riddance dicks sporting goods. If you are dumb enough to hire people who make customers feel violated, then I will make it my priority to boycott all of your stores. Bad business Dicks. I am not done with this either. I loved the store for two years, now I have to go to Bass Pro Shop because one of your managers think that his store is his personal dating site. SHAME ON YOU!

My son purchased a Diamondback Response EX Mountain bike from the Fort Wayne Indiana store. After getting it home he took the bike for a ride before work. In less than 1 hour the back bracket broke that held the sprocket. After taking this back to the store they refused to return it. I even took photos showing the brake and it was obvious the bracket was either over torqued during assembly or the bracket was in fact defective. All they said was they do not return bikes and it was due to improper use. How can improper use cause this type of damage when he rode it on a city street. This is not the 1st time we had trouble at this store (#228) and over the years we have purchased a lot of items. In the so called assistant manager was not the greatest person to work for. I did ask him if Dicks stood behind their merchandise and he said in this case it was the manufacture and not Dick’s. I asked him again the same question and not an excuse just a simple yes or no. His response was yes Dick’s did stand behind their merchandise. I explained that this was not true as the issue was between my son’s purchase and Dick’s. I also explained that it is extremely funny how a person can purchase shoes, sport equipment, ect and be able to wear or use one time but still return with no questions asked. The damaged product was between Dick’s and the manufacture. My family is now done supporting this so called store and expressed out displeasure with a number of our friends and organizations. We will now support stores who do stand behind everything and does in fact work with the consumer. Hey, Mr. CEO, my suggestion to you would be to purchase a defective pair of your hiking shoes and do just that. Take a hike!

I Went to a dicks store to buy some baseball stuff for my little league team. I was going to buy a whiffle ball bat set. I was unaware that the price was incorrect due to them having approx 7 items on the same rack with the same price! I go to checkout and they advise me that the price they marked and where the items were located were incorrect! They told me they would not honor the price, I then called customer service and advised them of the situation they stated they’ll make sure to call the store to make sure their prices are correct from now on!! thanks for taking care of your store I’m glad your company is more concerned with the store then the customer!!

Hello,
Just a week ago a friend and I went to one of your Dick’s stores in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
1520 Apple Glen Blvd, Ft Wayne, IN 46804
(260) 434-0181
While we were there at the gun & ammo section, my friend and I wanted to buy a box of CCI 100 rounds of 22 long rifle, the store clerk told us we can only buy one box each, due to the 22 ammo shortages, we were fine with that, my friend as we were going to check out , asked me if he could borrow $20.00 , since he didn’t bring any money with him, I gave him the $20.00. I paid for my box of ammo, and then he started to buy his , a store manager, says to me : ” I saw you give him the money , so he is not going to buy the ammo. I said so what, he borrowed the money so he can buy the 22′s, so we can go shooting that day, he said too bad, not going to sale him the 22′s. I replied to him that he didn’t have to be so rude and that he was being totally wrong too us, he said he didn’t care and being totally loud in front of everyone.”
I am sadly going to no longer do business with Dick’s, if your managers are going to be rude and not understanding, I can no longer do business with your company, I have bought several firearms there , but if your employees can not show any understanding and listen to its customers , I have no use for doing any more business with your company.
Thank You,
Kirk W. Stephens

Today I went into the Williamsburg DSS and had a great conversation with a sales associate, Chandler, who ended up selling me a 223 Savage Axis rifle. Another associate came over to start the paperwork and I gave him my license and hunting/fishing license from 2014 and one from 2013. All he needed was to make sure that the addresses were the same. When I said “hold up, one may be wrong because I did not fill it out, a friend did on-line, but no wait, it is correct”, the associate (James) then refused to start any paperwork saying to Chandler who tried to dissuade him “it is not my problem”. I am livid! As a customer, I should be able to purchase anything in the store that I can #1 pay for, and #2 qualify to own. When I complained to DS customer service, I was told by Maria (and her supervisor) that they take firearm sales very serious and that this was their procedure. All addresses were the same, therefor why was I judged insufficient to start paperwork? If the paperwork did not go through then that is where it should have ended. I feel that my rights as a citizen and a customer have been violated. Not happy with Dick’s!!!

Not all in-store experiences are bad, and not all people complain about poor customer service. I recently had an outstanding experience with Dick’s Corporate Headquarters, the Spokane Valley Dick’s Sporting Goods and it’s employees and managers. After we had accidentally bought a illegal bat for our league, all parties involved worked at length to make sure were were able to exchange our bat for a league legal one and even helped with the shipping both ways, since we had bought it on a trip through from Montana. The store that we dealt with was very helpful in the initial process of trying out bats, and very helpful in fixing the error. Thanks to all for your patience, understanding, and professionalism.

purchased a Maxfli performance engineered 3 wheel pull cart 2 years ago and the top bracket broke off. This is a problem with this particular model because i googled the issue and several other Dicks customers purchased this china junk and had the same problem. I called Dicks because they currently own Maxfli and i was told that i was out of luck so good luck. Not acceptable. I just wanted to purchase a replacement bracket. I will now take my business elsewhere other than Dicks to purchase another 3 wheel pull cart. You stink!!

I was in the store located at Memorial and Penn in Oklahoma City on Monday 4/14/14 around 8:00pm. I was shopping in the golf department. I noticed a man following one of your female employees around the department. It seems he was a manager or something and was critiquing the department. He was abrasive and on some kind of a power trip in my opinion. When he made her almost cry in the store, I put down my proposed purchases and left. I slept on this and decided that I wanted someone to know that this manager needs a leash put on him. It made me uncomfortable enough to walk out disgusted with his behavior.

Why does Dick’s discriminate against older women when it comes to golf apparel? The average american woman is size 14-16. If you are size 2-8-10 you can get nice clothing at Dicks If you are above those sizes you are forgotten about. I live in the Scranton PA area and even asked the buyer who was at the local store one day what was up with this. They had no response. You are missing a market as older women who are not size small tend to golf too. We have no clothing choices in your stores. It is disgusting. The same goes for men. You go up to Size 2XL. BIG DEAL. There are many large tall men that golf and again you have no choices for them.

Hi,
My name is Alyssa Quintanilla I am a sophomore at Brooks Academy of Science and Engineering in San Antonio,Texas. Our charter school Athletic Program holds high standards for all student-athletes. Our athletic coaches emphasis to us that we can not make any excuses for ourselves and that the world is not always fair. We are members of the University Interscholastic League which offers student athletes Basketball,Cross Country,Football,Powerlifting,Volleyball,and Wrestling. In two years we have achieved our greatest accomplishments which has led us to State Champion and National Champions in Powerlifting, 2State Wrestling Medalist, a Girls District Team Championship in Wrestling, Two ESPN San Antonio Athlete of The Week Awards, Two Co-District Basketball Team Championships, and a handful of All-District selections. I believe that this program must continue to move through any obstacles to maintain structure and discipline towards reaching our goals. But often we as student-athletes find the problems with our programs is lack of funds and equipment. Our charter school does not receive funds from the State, our funds are generated from monies raised by fundraiser. Our Athletic program has improved drastically, but the lack of equipment for every sport is a burden on our student athletes. We will require more money to sustain these growths and to meet the needs for us to compete in competitions. The reason for this email is to respectfully ask for donations or anything you think that could help our student-athletes to continue to build a foundation of success towards our academic athletic opportunities. Our motivation for hardwork time and investment will give us opportunities to believe in our program. Our small school story shows how perseverance and collective willpower overcomes all odds.
Please Note generous donations can also be utilized as write-offs on your taxes. In the fortunate event that your organization decides to donate,we will happily put your Logo/name on our equipment, shirts, banners,cloths,ect. and announce your name/business at our games. Your full support will be beneficial for both groups.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I want to thank you personally for taking your time to read this email and to hopefully hear from you soon.

Thank you,Alyssa Quintanilla
