Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced plans to expand its newly-opened distribution facility in Conklin, New York, with the addition of an internet sales fulfillment centre.
The 245,000 square foot development is in line with the company’s pledge to commit further investment to e-commerce. It will help provide more than 500 full-time jobs over the next five years.
Figures released at the end of last year revealed double-digit growth in Dick’s e-commerce business. Internet sales penetration for the fourth quarter of 2017 was 19% of total net sales and growing.
