It's a bummer, I wonder if the same will happen at Golf Galaxy.Dick’s fires more than 500 PGA pros - GolfWRX
Didn't realise they had one at every store until I saw this in Facebook.
That's fine, fire em all. The old dude who worked at the Dicks in East town mall here in Madison was annoying old bastard. Got to the point where I would go up the escalator and if I saw him in the golf section, I would go right back down.
Just because your store had a lousy pga pro doesn't mean they all were. I work at a Dicks as a second side job and our Pro is a good man. Never called out always happy to help. Married and has a kid and now he has no job at the drop of a hat. It's disappointing.
Well as ignorant as that is, I hope that you never walk into work only to be told to go home and not come back. It's hard enough finding a job out there.
Not surprising. Dick's CEO was recently complaining about how golf sales were less than expected... by quite a bit. Dick's owns Golf Galaxy, Golfworks, and their own big boxes. The next move will be the closing of some Golf Galaxy stores. Once Dick's understands that the big box concept isn't working in this industry, perhaps we will see a resurgence of "Mom & Pop" shops.
TMAG has been closely tied to Dick's. The TMAG CEO is now complaining about sales numbers. Maybe now they'll only bring out a new driver every 6 months instead of every 3 months!!!
