Dick’s Sporting Goods holds off on expansion

November 17, 2008 12:07PM

Dick’s Sporting Goods, which announced plans 11 months ago
to launch a significant move into South Florida, has put most of its expansion
plans on hold. The Pittsburgh-based retailer is still building an 80,000-square-foot
store on Southern Boulevard in Palm Beach County, slated to open in early 2009.
But Dick’s is waiting out the downturn to continue its search for locations in
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
