    Further Industry Consolidation??

    Comments by Dicks Sporting Goods (DKS) CEO, Ed Stack, in a recent Forbes write up:

    "Stack predicts further consolidation in the sporting goods space, where the top five companies control only 16% of the market. He plans to grow by taking market share, which includes tackling Sports Authority, purchased by private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners for $1.3 billion, on its Florida turf. His next move will be into Texas and California; then to make Dick's more of a national brand through sports event sponsorships and a multiyear deal with ESPN."

    No other sporting goods retailer as entrenched in CA as Sports Chalet. Hmmmmm....
