Dick's Sporting Goods

In the year 1948, Dick Stack was a salesperson working for a small store in Binghamton, New York. When his business plan to extend the store activity to selling fishing gear was mocked by his employer, Dick Stack decided to start a business of his own. Convinced that his idea was going to work, he used his small family savings to open up his own fishing gear and bait shop in Binghamton. Ten years later, his satisfied customers persuaded Dick that he should expand his product line. He then included many general sporting goods that are now available in modern Dick's Sporting Goods stores.

In the early 1990’s, the brand popularity and growth lead to the start of chain operations, the opening of additional branches across New York. In 1994, the company main headquarters were relocated to Pittsburgh.

In the year 2004, DSG established the company leader position in the sporting merchandise industry by acquiring 48 locations from the sports products retailer Galvan. In the year 2007, Dick's Sporting Goods acquired a large golf superstores operator, Golf Galaxy.
