MINNETONKA, MINN. — Dick’s Sporting Goods is set to open a House of Sport store in Minnetonka this May. The retailer says that the store is designed to explore the future of retail through multi-sport experiences. Dick’s currently operates two other House of Sport stores in Rochester, N.Y., and Knoxville, Tenn.

Specifically, the store will feature a 35-foot rock climbing wall; batting cage for baseball and softball; golf hitting bays; putting green; hockey shop; House of Cleats that will seasonally rotate product; health and wellness area; and a service area dedicated to sharpening hockey skates, breaking in gloves, stringing lacrosse sticks and building and repairing bikes. The store will also offer community programming such as sport clinics, rock climbing, summer camps, yoga classes and birthday parties.

The House of Sport store in Minnetonka will also feature a 20,000-square-foot outdoor turf field and running track that will open later this year. In the winter months, the field will be converted to an ice skating rink. Dick’s is looking to hire more than 200 associates for the location.
