Field & Stream Store Coming to Former Dick’s Sporting Goods Location in Cranberry

The outdoors store is a new concept for the sporting goods retailer.

Since Dick’s Sporting Goods c in the Cranberry Crossroads shopping center on Route 228, there have been numerous rumors regarding what would—and should—occupy the former space, including a L.A. Fitness. 

Well, the rumors can safely be laid to rest. 

Dick’s Sporting Goods has submitted a building permit application to renovate the vacated space into a new sporting goods concept store called Field & Stream, according to Cranberry Township’s business hub.

The new store’s target audience is outdoor lovers. The store will provide an expanded selection of hunting, fishing, hiking and camping equipment from what is currently available at the standard Dick’s Sporting Goods stores, according to the township.

Renovations to the space include a complete overhaul of the building’s front façade, a new exterior paint job, additional landscaping as well as minor improvements to the parking lot.

As shoppers at Cranberry Square may have noticed, some demolition work to make way for the improvements already have begun at the store.

In September, Field & Stream Licenses signed an agreement with Dick's Sporting Goods to sell its intellectual property rights in the hunting, fishing, camping and paddle categories.

An opening date for the new Field & Stream stores has not yet been set, according to the township.

What do you think? Are you excited a Field & Stream store will be opening at the former sporting goods store? Or were you hoping something else would be located in the space? Tell us in the comment section below.

Who do you mean by "they"?

Wow. Yes. A Hobby Lobby. While it is similar to Michaels and Joanns, it doesn't really compare.It is not similar to Bed, Bath and Beyond, and I won't even bring in Wal Mart .Really?? I thought it was about using existing space, and both the Kuhns and Dicks spaces are too small for Cabela's or Bass Pro. I would like to see either come to this area, and one eventually will, and they will build a mall to anchor it. and then you will have to drive to W Va for the great outdoors anyway.

All of you dissing this store apparently don't realize the that we have an extremely large part of our population that are hikers fisherman hunters archers and all around outdoors men trust me they overpopulate the few who think this store will be a failure.

Are you kidding me? All of you who think this store will be a failure are in for a huge surprise... They are gonna go head to head with Cabelas and Cabelas is completely over priced. For those of you wanting a "fitness center" go get bent !!! You wanna work out, Go for a hike, Pull a bow back a hundred times---who the hell wants to run in place in a stinking sweat factory... this store is looking beautiful and it's not for the limited cranberry yuppies--It's for everyone in Butler County and Surrounding counties who out number you... Everytime I go to The Dicks on 228, The second floor is packed... Honestly, anyone who opposes the outdoors and its activities make me sick and WE don't have time for you--So go play on your i-phone and keep getting lazier---- To everyone else---Keep living outdoors and enjoying your life !!!!
