A little more good news

From the Oregonian:

Dick’s Sporting Goods, a Pittsburgh-based chain with 409 stores in 40 states, will on November 8 open six stores in Gresham, Tualatin, Hillsboro, Salem, Eugene and Bend in spaces formerly occupied by the now-defunct Joe's.
Dick’s, while declining to disclose specifics, said its Washington Square location has done extremely well since opening in March 2008. The company said that each of its new Oregon stores will employee between 40 and 60 people.

500 new jobs is always welcome but most of these positions won't help the real estate market out.
