The long awaited grand opening of Dunham’s Sports was Friday morning at Colony Square Mall.
Anxious customers lined up outside the store just before 9 o’clock to watch the ribbon cutting and to get some good deals. Store Manager Les Jahn said he was very happy with the store’s grand opening.
"We have a very big hunting selection. Our golf selection is incomparable. We actually have a brand new golf simulator there so we can go in and swing a few," said Jahn. "We can get anything general athletics such as volleyball, baseball, football, basketball, anything ya need."
Joshua Wilson stopped by Dunham’s to pick up ammunition for his 22. He said it’s hard to come by and says the new store compares to the other big sporting goods chains in Columbus.
"It seems nice, spacious. Bigger than the old store. Seems like a nice selection," said Wilson. "There’s some local items in there as well for high school athletic apparel and things like that so i though that was pretty nice as well."
Dunham’s is open 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday’s from 10 to 6 p.m.
