"As leaders in sporting goods and fitness apparel, we wanted to provide a destination for women who are on their own personal fitness journeys; a store where they can come in and feel part of a community that understands them and their needs," said Lauren Hobart, SVP, DICK'S Sporting Goods/General Manager, Chelsea Collective. "We feel Chelsea Collective will meet and exceed this active woman's expectations."
While owned and operated by DICK'S Sporting Goods, Chelsea Collective locations will operate as small boutique shops. Both the Tysons Corner and Pittsburgh locations will focus on forming local partnerships that will benefit and reward loyal customers.
