The Columbia Center Mall has been dancing around the question ever since the Regal 8 Cinema closure and now it can officially be announced - Dick's Sporting Goods is coming to the mall.

The new retail giant will consume 49,000 square feet in the same location as the now defunct movie theater.

Bids have been solicited for the renovation and it could take up to 10 months before Dick's is open and operating.

The total renovation could cost $7.4 million when its completed.
