Leading Sporting Goods Retailer Plugs into CommerceHub’s Robust Supplier Network to Increase Assortment and Boost Omni-Channel Expansion
CommerceHub (Nasdaq: CHUBA, CHUBK), a leading distributed commerce network for retailers and brands, today announced that DICK’S Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS) has deployed CommerceHub’s unified e-commerce platform to drive omni-channel growth on DSG.com and key subsidiaries, including Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream. The partnership is allowing DICK’S to offer a broader assortment of sporting goods online – from fishing gear to running shoes, golf clubs, and baseball gloves, for professional and recreational athletes alike – and deliver products to customers quickly and efficiently.
“CommerceHub provides us with the technical capabilities to integrate quickly with our key vendor partners and enables consistent communication on the most important operational metrics,” said Eileen Meade, vice president of omni-channel customer experience at DICK’S. “Their platform gives us the venue to offer our customers an expanded assortment with a seamless customer experience. With CommerceHub, we have increasing insight to the complete omni-channel solution.”
Shoppers today have strong personal preferences when it comes to sporting goods, whether it’s a favorite brand of footwear, their hometown team, or custom-made lacrosse equipment. To capture growth and build loyalty, retailers need to broaden their assortments by connecting with a wider selection of brands that appeal to customers and fit the needs of their chosen sports.
DICK’s selected CommerceHub based on the extensive roster of brands that are already part of its network and the ease with which the company’s robust technology allows them to add new suppliers and deliver orders to customers seamlessly.
“Athletes and outdoor enthusiasts look to DICK’S for all of their sporting goods needs,” said Frank Poore, President and CEO of CommerceHub. “Through CommerceHub’s platform, we’re providing an ‘endless aisle’ experience to DICK’S customers online, so they aren’t limited by the space available on store shelves or in warehouses – and DICK’S can offer a much broader array of items they’re seeking for the activities they love.”
Since its public listing, CommerceHub has announced major additions to its network of retailers and brands, including DICK’S and BJ’s Wholesale Club, as well as an expansion onto Walmart Marketplace. This momentum reflects CommerceHub’s focus on driving growth for its partners, as they take their e-commerce operations to the next level through CommerceHub’s supply, demand, and delivery solutions.
