What type of business is it? Sporting Goods 

What specifically does your business do? Conway will feature Nike, Adidas and Under Armor shops, athletic and outdoor footwear and a complete golf pro shop staffed by PGA professionals. The location also has all of the latest gear for team sports, fitness, camping, hunting and fishing. Dick’s Sporting Goods also offers a full line of services including custom golf club fittings and the sale of hunting and fishing licenses.   

Why did you decide to open this business/location? We chose the Conway Commons location due to Conway being a great market in which we can serve the sporting goods needs of the local community. We feel that this store will be a great addition to the other stores we have in the market.

What is the best part about owning/operating this business? “We are excited to open our newest store in the community of Conway,” said Dick’s Sporting Goods Chief Marketing Officer Lauren Hobart. “We are extremely proud of our long standing tradition for having the best selection of sporting good products, as well as the highest level of customer service. The opening of a new store in Conway will give Dick’s Sporting Goods another opportunity to prove our commitment to serving our customers and their community.”
