New sporting goods store in Grand Island
A new sporting goods store is coming to the Tri-Cities. The Grand Island Independent is reporting that Dick's Sporting Goods will open a fourth Nebraska location at the soon-to-be renovated pedestrian mall where the Grand Island Mall is currently located. The Grand Island City Council authorized up to $6.4 million of tax increment financing for the redevelopment at Tuesday's city council meeting. A potential one-half to one percent sales tax would likely help fund the project. Dick's Sporting Goods currently has two stores in Omaha and one in Papillion. The company reportedly has been looking at locations in Grand Island since last year.
