Dick’s Sporting Items Opens In Temecula; Murrieta Retailer Closes


TEMECULA, CA – A new Dick’s sporting goods store at the Promenade Temecula mall is celebrating its grand opening this weekend with gift cards and a sweepstakes.

Temecula Dick’s will officially open its doors at 9:00 am on Saturday. The celebration continues throughout the weekend with a variety of in-store celebrations and giveaways, including mystery gift cards for the first 100 adults in line each day (one winner receives a $500 gift card), games and a sweepstakes for a prize package worth up to $500, the company said.

The new store occupies space previously leased from Sears. About 10 part-time and 35 temporary positions have been filled for the new store at 40710 Winchester Road, which will offer athletic and outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment, the retailer reported.
