Visions for Vacancy: What Should Move into the Former Dick’s Sporting Goods?

The sporting goods store has moved to a new location in the Cranberry Crossroads. What would you like to see happen to its former building?

The big business news in October was the opening of the new Dick’s Sporting Goods in the Cranberry Crossroads retail complex along Route 228.

The standalone venue features two floors and an expanded selection of merchandise.

But what about the store’s former location in the Cranberry Square Mall off Route 19?

There have been rumors of an LA Fitness moving into the building, as well as talk of an outdoors store occupying the space.

According to Dick’s Sporting Goods officials, nothing is in place for the former location—yet.

Pat Wolf, regional vice-president of Dick’s Sporting Goods, said the building would remain in the company. A future use for it still is to be determined, he said.

“We’re not getting rid of it,” he said.

In the meantime, we’d like to have some fun. With that in mind, what would you like to see fill the vacant spot.

Is there something that would benefit the Cranberry area community? How could this space better serve you and your neighbors?

BIg Lots would be wonderful, but I am with those who said Trader Joe's (my favorite grocery store). It would be so nice not having to drive to East LIberty each weekend.

I love Golden Corral! I was so sad when they pulled out of an earlier plan in Cranberry! I would love to see one here!

Have you ever been to a Golden Corral?? They are huge!!! In fact there might not be enough parking in the lot for a Golden Corral.

I agree the YMCA is way too expensive. We considered getting a family membership this year and was amazed at the cost.....and decided against it!
