GU hoop stars Stepp and Dickau will be on hand for Dick’s Sporting Goods gala

The young folks are happy now that Spokane Valley got an H&M store. Big news there.

Now the rest of the Inland Northwest gets something to celebrate: the opening on Wednesday of the new Dick's Sporting Goods store.

Why is this big? Dick's (we didn't know this before) is the largest U.S.-based full-line sporting goods retailer.

The outdoor retailer's store is also in the Spokane Valley Mall, which has to be happy that it's landed both Dick's and H&M.

The store is hosting a sports celebrity weekend celebration. Former GU hoop stat Blake Stepp will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.

On Sunday, Dan Dickau, another Zag hall of famer, will come by from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A press release noted the Spokane store is the retailer's third in Washington and its 518th nationwide.
