The story begins
During his youth Dick Stack worked as an Army surplus store worker for DICKS Sport. He is a passionate fisherman and the store owner approached him to list the necessary items to enter a fishing equipment business. After Dick provided some suggestions, the owners were unable to figure out what the problem was and said that they were dumb. Dick quickly grew tired of leaving. Afterwards, he went home and told his mother what had happened in the house he grew up in. Dicks grandmother asked what the cost would be for his own store construction. Dick says it’ll be $300.
