New Sportsman's Warehouse stores in Spokane, Stockton
Midvale-based Sportsman's Warehouse is opening two new stores this year, probably in August, taking over sites that formerly had been Sports Authority outlets.
One is in Spokane, the 11th Sportsman's Warehouse in that northwestern state. The other is in Stockton, Calif., the ninth in that state. The additions increase the sporting good chain's presence to 87 stores in 22 states.
"To further expand in existing states signifies our continued strength in the west," said company CEO John Schaefer. "Each of these areas has a strong outdoor heritage, and we plan to become an active, contributing partner."
