             Dunham's Sports, one of the nation's largest sporting goods chains, will hold its grand opening this weekend.
        The ribbon cutting is set for Friday at 9 a.m. at the Northside Drive location in the Southern Square Shopping Center near Kmart. Store hours are Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
        The first 100 adults in line on Friday will receive a Dunham's Sports t-shirt. Also on Friday, there will be free 6-packs of Coke or Diet Coke to anyone making a $10 purchase, while supplies last. The first 100 adults on Saturday will receive a Dunham's Sports baseball cap. On Sunday, the first 50 people/families in line will receive a $10 Dunham's Sports gift card.
        "We are excited to be opening a store in the Statesboro community," said Jeff Lynn, chairman and chief executive officer of Dunham's Athleisure Corporation. "Dunham's prides itself on providing our customers with a wide variety of top-quality, value-oriented, name-brand merchandise at everyday low prices."
        The opening of the Statesboro location is the second Dunham's Sports in Georgia and marks more than 225 stores chain wide. The new Statesboro store offers a full line of traditional sporting goods and athletic equipment, as well as a wide variety of active and casual sports apparel and footwear featuring Under Armour, Nike, Adidas, Reebok and more.
        "We keep our customers coming back because of our continued commitment to provide the largest selections at the lowest prices," Lynn said.
        There will also be a large selection of athletic and outdoor apparel, a fitness department, plus a large value area. The expanded hunting department will offer brands like Remington, Rocky, Bushnell and Barnett. The store also will have a Fairway Center golf shop featuring top golf brands such as Taylormade, Titleist, Callaway and more.
        Lynn said Dunham's strives to save the people living in our local communities' money with programs like Dunham's Rewards, the Team Program and the Company Program.
        The Team Program allows coaches of youth sports teams to sign their team up for a money-saving weekend so kids can get all the equipment they need to participate in sports.
        Dunham's was founded in 1937 in Detroit as Dunham's Bait and Tackle. You can join the sports conversation on Dunham's Facebook page at
