PLAINVILLE - Dick’s Sporting Goods in Plainville has closed its doors.

An automated voice messaging system confirmed that the “location has closed.”

Plainville Town Manager Robert E. Lee said Dick’s Sporting Goods had been in Plainville at least 15 years - as long as he has been town manager.

“I think that, unfortunately, this is a product of people buying online, versus going to stores nowadays,” he said. “People have embraced the convenience of buying online, so there are less feet walking through the door. Every time you turn around, you hear about another store closing; it’s unfortunate. I just heard that Macy’s in Meriden was closing. This isn’t something that’s unique to Plainville.”

Attempts to reach Dick’s Sporting Goods’ corporate office were unsuccessful.
