In 1948, eighteen-year-old Dick Stack was an energetic salesman at a small Army and Navy store in Binghamton, New York. One day he received $300 from his grandmother and Dick opened a modest bait and tackle shop in Binghamton. By 1958, at the urging of his loyal customers, he expanded his product line to include much of what you'll find at Dick's Sporting Goods today.
