I've wondered what was going in the new building next to Wal-Mart on Elmore in Davenport. I know now and I'm pretty excited. It's a bigger Dick's Sporting Goods, and they have brought along a Field and Stream, and a Golf Galaxy! This is a amazing line up. I personally shop at Dicks for all my Cubs gear and golf gear (yep, I play golf but not well). What was more impressive was the line up of sports celebs they got for their grand opening. My jaw hit the floor. Check this out...
