Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) announced an agreement to acquire Moosejaw, an outdoor retailer owned by Walmart (WMT), for an undisclosed sum on Wednesday.
“We admire what Moosejaw has accomplished over the past 30 years as leaders in the outdoor industry and look forward to the opportunity to share insights and learn from one another,” said Todd Spaletto, President, Public Lands and Senior Vice President, DICK’S Sporting Goods. “We believe there’s potential to grow the Moosejaw business and provide compelling experiences and an expanded product assortment to its millions of loyal customers.”
