Arthur Blank, Dick Sullivan Promote Latest PGA Superstore Opening
Falcons Owner & PGA Tour Superstore Chair Arthur Blank and PGA Tour Superstore CEO Dick Sullivan appeared on CNBC's "Squawk Box" Friday morning to promote the opening of the chain's 19th location. Blank, a Home Depot co-Founder, said the golf stores are "The Home Depot for golfers." Blank: "It's a very exciting store and if you think of it in terms of scale or size it's probably 15-20 times (larger than) the traditional golf specialty stores."
Sullivan noted the chain has a "50-year license" from the PGA Tour. Sullivan: "It's terrific because … we are the worldwide provider of on-site e-commerce for the PGA Tour. So when you go to PGATOUR.com and you hit click 'shop,' we provide worldwide all of the purchases for the PGA Tour. So that's a terrific opportunity for us to grow our business just beyond the growth of our stores" ("Squawk Box," CNBC, 12/13).
