Major sporting goods store opens in Findlay

FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The largest sporting goods store in the country just got a little bigger. Friday was the grand opening of a new Dick's Sporting Goods store in Findlay.

The new store sits on Tiffin Avenue. Hancock County economic officials say this is a great time for retailers to open, bringing more jobs and shopping locations for the holiday season.

Shoppers say they're glad the store is open.

"Any time you open up a business is good, and I think it's great for Findlay because you don't have to go anywhere else, it's right in your back yard," said Skip Ruhe.

The first 100 people in line Saturday will receive a free gift card, ranging from $5-500. There will also be a special appearance by former Major League Baseball pitcher Len Barker on Sunday.
