Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced its intent today to hire for three new Puget Sound area locations, including one at the Tacoma Mall.

The Pennsylvania-based sporting goods retailer announced its intention to move into the Tacoma shopping complex in June of 2016. Now, the company has begun the hiring process for that store, as well as locations at the Parkway Supercenter in Tukwila and Crossroads Bellevue.

The retailer expects to hire a total of approximately 170 full-time and part-time workers for the three stores, as well as up to 80 temporary positions.

The new stores are expected to open in October of 2017.
