    Default Dick's in Ellicott City opens tomorrow, yay!

    Okay, in the scheme of things this isn't that big of a deal, but I'm getting a Dick's Sporting Goods 5 minutes from my house. That's exciting to me. I used to live near the Dick's by Glen Burnie and appreciated their selection of gear. A couple months ago I went to the Dick's in Columbia only to discover that it's the only Dick's in Maryland that doesn't have a fishing department. They had all the 'Barbie and Ken' sports covered, but no fishing. Now that was sad. I'm so looking forward to having a Home Depot and a Dick's in the same parking lot. Anyway, it's good to see a new store opening rather than stores closing, and that it's a Dick's is great.

    I remember when the Dicks Sporting Goods in Columbia used to have fishing gear. I was excited to see the Dicks in Ellicott City and drove by it on Saturday...only to find it wasn't open yet. Yes, I am looking forward to having other options besides Walmart and Bass Pro.

    This is good news - My AE Firm was instrumental in the DSG moving into their current location in Glen Burnie, that center was in need of sigificant repairs, and we actually lifted the entire roof system and reinstalled columns to achieve the open structure ceiling height required by DSG in their lease verbiage. It all makes sense when you see the 12' surf rod rack located ONTOP of the gondola shelving!

    Their grand opening promo includes fishing gear, so I assume so.

    Its been at least 5 years since the columbia one carried fishing gear. My guess it they couldn't compete with basspro. Hopefully this one doesnt make the same decision.

    If you have been to the Glen Burnie store or the Crofton store, it's about the same. It fits in a niche somewhere between Walmart and Bass Pro, very modest priced equipment for the "average" angler. Serious fishermen would be better off at Bass Pro or Tochterman's.

    I was just there and agree with you. It's not really fair for me to judge the fishing supplies as I know that Dicks has changed seasons and is focused on hunting. They've got all the basics and then some, so that's good. But it certainly won't replace bass pro. I couldn't find enough that I wanted to use the $10 off coupon. It's still good to have it here and hopefully in the spring they will well stock and expand the fishing section a bit.
