The coronavirus-led temporary store closures have severely impacted retailers’ top line. While several companies have gone bankrupt, others have shut down businesses. Despite the gloomy scenario, DICK’S Sporting Goods, Inc. DKS has emerged as one of the retail companies that has managed to not only resume operations but is also gradually witnessing improved trends. Encouragingly, it is making every effort to expand its store network across the United States.

Post the opening of these stores, the company will operate 732 DICK’S Sporting Goods stores, 97 Golf Galaxy stores and 14 Warehouse Sale stores in 47 states.
