About Dick’s Sporting Goods
The owner of Dick's
Sporting Goods, Dick Stack, asked him to make a list of fishing tackle needed
for expanding the business when he worked at an Army surplus store. The store
owner said Stack was a dumb kid who did not know what he was doing even though
he had fishing experience. Stack quit his job and went to his grandmother for
comfort. He started the bait-and-tackle store with $300 from her life savings.
Dick's Sporting Goods was founded in 1948. A wide range of new products was
