DICK’s Sporting Goods was founded by Dick Stack in 1948. When he was an 18-year-old young man he was working at an Army surplus store in Binghamton, NY. He was hugely interested in fishing and he knew a lot about it. One day he was approached by the store owner and he asked Stack to prepare a list of items needed to start a fish tacking business. He thought about it thoroughly but when he presented the product list to his employer he didn’t like it at all. He told him that he was dumb and that he didn’t know anything about this business. He was very disappointed so he decided to quit. Later, he told his grandmother about what happened and his grandmother asked him how much he would need to start a fishing store himself. When he said $300 would be enough, his grandmother gave him that amount out of her savings and encouraged him to start his own business. Thanks to his grandmother’s contribution he managed to open a bait-and-tackle shop. His business became successful and by the end of 1970’s he expanded his product offerings to everything you can find at DICK’s Sporting Goods today.
As of 2019, the company has over 850 stores and employs over 30,000 people. The chain is still growing and it is listed on the Fortune 500. It is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. DICK’S Sporting Goods went public on the New York Stock Exchange in 2002 and has been dominating the market since then. The company also owns and operates Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream specialty stores.
