Pittsburgh and Minneapolis — DICK’S Sporting Goods is now hiring for a new DICK’S Sporting Goods House of Sport store that will open in May 2022 in Minnetonka, Minn. The new retail concept was launched last year when the first-ever DICK’S House of Sport opened in Victor, N.Y., in April 2021.
The new Minnetonka store will feature a 35-foot rock climbing wall, a batting cage for baseball and softball featuring HitTrax™ technology, golf hitting bays with TrackMan™ simulators, a putting green, a hockey shop, a House of Cleats™ that will seasonally rotate product, a health and wellness destination in the store where customers can find products and advice focused on recovery and well-being, and a consolidated service area dedicated to sharpening hockey skates, breaking in gloves, stringing lacrosse sticks, building and repairing bikes and more.
The new House of Sport store will also offer community programming such as sport clinics, rock climbing, summer camps, yoga classes, birthday parties and more; as well as elevated in-store services with associates who are passionate about helping customers while showcasing their love for sport.
DICK’S House of Sport Minnetonka also will offer a 20,000-square-foot outdoor turf field and running track attached to the store. It will open later this year and will host open play, fitness and sports clinics, and practices for athletes of all ages. In the winter months, the field will convert to an ice skating rink and offer open skate, skating lessons, stick and puck drills, and games.
More than 200 positions are available at this new location (Ridgedale Center, 12437 Wayzata Blvd.) and hiring will continue into the month of April. Associates will benefit from competitive pay, store discounts, in-depth training and the opportunity to work with the best sports and outdoor brands.
