Sport Chalet plans to hire new employees

Sport Chalet plans to hire about 50 new employees for its first Texas store, which is slated to open in Frisco next year, a company spokeswoman confirmed Monday.

The California-based sporting goods retailer has started advertising for Store Manager, Assistant Store Manager and Sales Associate positions at the future location. The positions were posted on the company’s website and on

The store will be located at 3685 Preston Road, in the Frisco Bridges development, which is currently under construction. It will be Sport Chalet’s first location in Texas.

Frisco Economic Development Director John Classe said the retailer would be a good fit for the city because of its proximity to several major highways, including the Dallas North Tollway and Sam Rayburn Tollway.

“I think it will bring some traffic to that area that wouldn’t ordinarily come,” he said. “I think it will help support some of the other businesses that are there.”

Sport Chalet is a full-service sporting goods retailer with stores throughout California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah. It offers equipment and gear for team sports, as well as individual sports such as tennis, golf, skiing and snowboarding.

Sport Chalet’s History

Founded in 1959, Sport Chalet is a chain of sporting goods stores in the Southwestern United States. The company was started by Norbert Olberz and his wife, Irene, in North Hollywood, California. The first store was a small ski and scuba shop. The company has since expanded to include locations in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Texas.

Sport Chalet was founded in 1959

Sport Chalet was founded in 1959 by Norbert Olberz as a small ski and tennis shop in La Cañada, California. In 1963, the first Sport Chalet store opened in Pasadena, California. Sport Chalet rapidly expanded throughout Southern California during the 1960s and 1970s. The company began to offer scuba diving lessons in the early 1970s, becoming a leading retailer of diving equipment by the end of the decade. In 1977, Sport Chalet became a public company traded on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

Sport Chalet has been expanding steadily

Sport Chalet was founded in 1959 by Norbert Olberz as a small ski shop in La Cañada Flintridge, California, United States. The company started with just six employees. In its early years, Sport Chalet’s main clientele were local high school and college students. The company gradually expanded its product offerings to include a wider range of outdoor activities, such as camping and hiking gear.

By the mid-1970s, Sport Chalet had grown to include five stores in Southern California. The company went public in 1986, and by the early 1990s, it had reached $100 million in annual sales. In 2003, Sport Chalet acquired Sierra Trading Post, an online retailer of outdoor gear and apparel. This expanded Sport Chalet’s reach beyond its brick-and-mortar locations.

In recent years, Sport Chalet has been expanding steadily, both through new store openings and acquisitions. In 2014, the company acquired Endurance House, a chain of specialty running stores. The following year, Sport Chalet opened its first store in Texas.
