Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Dick's plans major expansion in CA, FL, other states

Dick's plans major expansion

Dick’s Sporting Goods executives told an investor conference that the sporting goods chain, already the largest in the nation, could double its store count to 900 in the U.S.

 

Dick’s carries some surf and snow brands, and I’ve heard complaints from some surf retailers, especially in smaller towns, about having to compete with the big box retailer.

 

California, Florida and Texas are three of several states expected to see many more Dick’s stores in the future.

 

California currently has 15 stores, and that number could grow to 94.

 

Florida currently has 11, and that could grow to 54.

 

Texas currently has 18, and could grow to 60.

 

North Carolina, which already has 22 stores, could see that number grow to 31.

 

Washington’s store count could grow from one to 18.

 

Dick’s plans to nearly double its store count in New York from 29 to 50.

 

Arizona could grow from 6 to 20.

 

Dick’s is projecting it will record $4.4 billion in revenue for the 2010 fiscal year.

 

Here is the projected store count for each state in the future that Dick's unveiled at an investor's conference and filed with the SEC.
