The space has been empty since department store chain Bon-Ton closed its anchor market in 2018.

Dick’s already has 52,000 square feet of space outside of the mall’s main building at 2088 Interchange Road.

The US Sun has reached out to the brand for comment, confirming the opening of the new store.

Bon-Ton announced five years ago that it would close its Millcreek Mall store.

It was one of 200 of the retailer’s branches to close nationwide in the wake of a bankruptcy.


Dick’s Sporting Goods’ expansion into Millcreek Mall follows the closure of two stores late last year.

His Midwest City, Oklahoma store closed on December 31, 2022.

Residents were reportedly upset that the city didn’t do more to keep the retailer in the 50,000-square-foot building Midwest city beacon.

A second Dick’s location has since closed – this one in Columbia, South Carolina.

A reason for the closure was not announced.


CVS announced plans to close 900 US stores over three years.

Bed Bath & Beyond announced on Tuesday that it will close an additional 150 stores to avoid bankruptcy.

This is in addition to the closure of 87 of its flagship stores, including the entire Harmon beauty store brand.

The US Sun reported how Gap has closed its Mall of America store and plans to close 350 others across the country.

That is about a third of the branch closures.

Big-name pharmacy chains like Walgreens and CVS have announced store closures beginning Jan. 31, including a “flagship” location.
