Burlington, NC-- It's big news for the Triad, 90,000 square-feet big! Dunham's Sports, the Michigan-based sports retailer, has chosen Burlington's Holly Hill Mall as its newest, and largest, location.
Holly Hill's Managing Partner David Morton told WFMY News 2 that Dunham chose Burlington over several other nationwide locations and negotiations have been in the works for almost 2 years.
"It's basically the Sam's Wholesale of sports...it will literally take you 2 and a half hours to get through our store," Morton said.
"[Dunham's] features all types of sports played around the world...and they discount every single thing they sell," Morton explained.
Demolition of the location, which was formerly Belk, will start next week.
The tentative store-opening is set for May or June of 2012.
Dunham's Sports was established in Waterford, MI, in 1937 and has over 160 locations worldwide.
