Dick’s Sporting Goods has signed a lease for a location at Prescott Valley Crossroads, the first location for the company in Northern Arizona. It is a Kitchell Development project.

Located at State Highway 69 and Sundog Ranch Rd., the new location is 85 miles north of Phoenix in a growing area that caters year-round to tourists and the expansive population of Prescott Valley, Prescott and surrounding northern Arizona communities.

Construction of the freestanding store will begin this spring with anticipated opening during the fourth quarter of 2013.

Prescott Valley Crossroads is an 800,000 SF power center offering one of the last premier locations in the area for large tenants. Other anchor tenants are Sam’s Club, Home Depot, Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree.

Dick’s Sporting Goods kicks off Phase II build-out of the project, which opened in the summer of 2008.

Kitchell Development, part of the Kitchell family of companies, is a full-service developer offering construction and property management services with specialties in retail, office, industrial and multi-family development.
