The opening also represents an entry for the combined concepts in the greater Austin area featuring both retailers under the same roof. There are three other DICK's Sporting Goods location in Austin. The retailers are the latest entrants into the fast-growing community, joining a mix of commercial tenants at the 42-acre, 370,000-square-foot shopping center dubbed The Parke, along the 183-A toll road near East New Hope Drive, developed by Austin-based Endeavor Real Estate Group.
“We’re excited to offer Austin, and in-particular, the Cedar Park community, two great stores in one location,” Lauren Hobart, Executive Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer, DICK’S Sporting Goods, said in a prepared statment. “The rich history of sports and outdoor traditions in this market provide us with a great opportunity to serve the community in a way only we can. The new stores will carry a wide range of apparel, equipment and accessories, including offerings from exclusive brands such as CALIA by Carrie Underwood, Field & Stream and Walter Hagen.”
The new location is the eleventh of its kind in the country to open, company officials said.
