Dick’s Sporting Goods to open its Forest Hills location in March, hiring 100 employees

Feb. 1, 2017 By Hannah Wulkan

Sporting goods chain Dick’s is looking to hire 100 new employees for it’s first Queens store, slated to open in Forest Hills in March, the company announced.

The new store, which is taking the place of the former Sports Authority at 73-25 Woodhaven Boulevard, will hire 100 full-time, part-time, and temporary associates in the coming months in preparation for its grand opening.

Though the company has not announced an exact opening date, it has stated that the store will open in March with a three-day celebration, with giveaways and special appearances.

The store will sell a variety of athletic and outdoor equipment, and the company said in a statement the ideal candidate would “draw on their personal experiences and in-depth knowledge to guide, inform, equip and inspire” customers. Those hired will be offered “competitive pay” and store discounts, the company stated.

The Forest Hills location marks the second Dick’s in New York City, with the only other location on Staten Island.

It will be one of the first Sports Authority stores converted to the Dick’s brand after Sports Authority filed for bankruptcy last year and Dick’s bought out the company
