Dick’s to replace Sears at Capital City Mall

Dick’s Sporting Goods plans to take over the space being left by Sears at the Capital City Mall in Cumberland County.

The move was announced this morning by the mall’s owner, the Philadelphia-based real estate investment trust PREIT, which has been working to replace closing Sears stores at malls around the region.

For Dick’s, the new store at Capital City would be its second in Cumberland County. The Pittsburgh-based retailer has a store in Hampden Township. It also has one in Dauphin County and three in York County.

Efforts to reach Dick’s this morning were not immediately successful. But Heather Crowell, a spokesperson for PREIT, wrote in an email that it was her company’s understanding that Dick’s would be relocating its existing Cumberland County store.

Sears Holdings Corp. said in January that it would be closing its store at Capital City by mid February, as well as two Kmarts in Central Pennsylvania. The closings were part of a larger retrenchment by the company.

Plans already are under way to replace one of those Kmarts, in Hampden Township. It is being replaced by Marshalls, Homegoods and Stein Mart, a boutique department store chain
