Golf Galaxy closing the only store in Washington after only two years in business

Updated: October 2, 2010

Golf Galaxy held their grand opening on Nov. 14, 2008 at the Renton Landing, and in less than one year the golf store will be closing its doors in October after failing to come to a lease agreement.

Golf Galaxy had good success with plenty of golfers coming through the doors. The chain was bought by Dick’s Sporting Goods in 2007 for $225 million, and is reported to have 91 stores in 31 states. The closure in Renton is one of many for the company – one in Illinois, one in California, five in Texas and one in Jacksonville.

No explanation for the closure is being offered other than they did not renew their lease.

There is a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Puyallup, the only one in the state.
