According to Dick’s spokeswoman Katie Forbidussi, the business expects to hire approximately 20 part-time employees for this newly relocated location.
This is the third store this year to leave the mall for the Lycoming Crossing Strip Mall. Old Navy opened in the Strip Mall in late March, followed by the shoe department in August.
The Lycoming Mall quickly lost tenants last year when Dino’s Pizzateria closed its doors earlier this month. Kay Jewelers moved from the mall to E. Third Street near Loyal Plaza in Loyalsock Ward last spring.
Lycoming Mall does not currently have a large anchor shop, the last large anchor, Sears, will be leaving in January 2018. Only Books-A-Million and Burlington Coat Factory remain the mall’s junior anchor stores. A handful of smaller shops and restaurants remain in the mall.
