Dick's Sporting Goods is hiring for its new store opening soon at Hamilton Place mall.

The store, which will replace an existing site located across Gunbarrel Road near the mall, is looking to fill 25 part-time positions and 35 temporary posts, according to the company.

The new store is expected to open in March in revamped space formerly held by Sears.

The new Dick's Sporting Goods is part of the biggest-ever revamp at Hamilton Place mall. The former Sears store and its nearby parking lots are making room for new retail, restaurant and office space.

A Dave & Buster's restaurant and entertainment complex also is opening in March in the former Sears space.

Urban Air Adventure Park, whose locations feature activities such as trampolines, go-carts, indoor skydiving, climbing walls, laser tag and ropes courses among others, is slated to open this year year at Hamilton Village on Gunbarrel Road in the current Dick's site.
