Dick's Sporting Goods to Build Warehouse in Goodyear, AZ
Retailer's Expansion to Serve Western U.S.
December 7, 2011
Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. will build a 600,000-square-foot distribution center in Goodyear, AZ, that will service the western US and is expected to open in early 2013 and bring about 120 initial jobs.
The distribution center, the fourth for the sporting goods retailer, will ultimately employ about 300 people and support about 160 stores as Dick’s grows its store base in the West over the next 5-10 years.
Stretching across more than 50 acres, the Goodyear operation at 4651 N. Cotton Lane at Interstate 10 and Loop 303 will serve as an anchor tenant in the master planned 1,600-acre PV303 business park.
Construction on the approximately $40 million distribution center is scheduled to begin this month and deliver early in the first quarter of 2013. Kris Bjorson of Chicago-based Jones Lang LaSalle was the lead broker on the deal. Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Merit Partners, Inc. is serving as the development agent for Dick's Sporting Goods, while Butler Design Group of Phoenix is the project's lead architect.
The general contracting is being managed by Renaissance Companies of Scottsdale and Atlanta area-based Johnson Stephens Consulting is the Material Handling Equipment and Operational design and engineering partner.
