Dick’s Sporting Goods is set to more than double its Public Lands’ store portfolio with these openings.

The four new stores will open from this fall, starting in Framingham, Massachusetts on 14 October. The other stores will open on 21 October, 28 October and 4 November in Melville, New York, Kennesaw, Georgia and Medford, Oregon respectively.

With retail locations designed to inspire and fuel a need to get outside, Public Lands made its debut in September 2021, with a 50,000sq ft store in the Pittsburgh suburb of Cranberry Township. It was followed by locations in Columbus, Ohio and Charlottesville, Virginia.

“When we first opened Public Lands, we set out to make a difference not just for our national public lands, but also for our local communities and organizations supporting outdoor recreation for all,” said Public Lands President Todd Spaletto. “We’re thrilled to be able to double our giveback in honour of National Public Lands Day to support the work of these organisations. We also can’t wait to welcome people to our four new Public Lands locations, including our first stores in the southeast and northwest, where they can get the gear they need, find a community through our events, and celebrate public lands.”
