KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – As we approach Father’s Day weekend, many are searching for the perfect gift for the men in their lives.
Glenn Hudson, a pro golfer at Dick’s House of Sport in Knoxville, says her business is struggling with heavy foot traffic ahead of Father’s Day.
“We had to hire extra people because of Father’s Day weekend and the US Open on TV, so it’s obviously a very busy weekend. The flow of traffic in the store was very heavy over the weekend and we expect it to get even stronger, ”said Hudson.
Hudson says some of the most popular items that are flying off the shelves at the site are golf gifts for dad.
“They’re looking for golf balls, they’re looking for clothes, gloves, shoes,” said Hudson.
Many also head to the outdoor department to find the perfect gifts for dad.
Nick Coover says items like yetis, hydroflasks, and grills are popular items that many pick up on.
“We got the latest and greatest from Trager and Blackstone, like the new Blackstone 36 inch flat top grill is something a lot of people have asked for. We have the carrier-smokers with us. We are one of the few Trager dealers in the area, ”says Coover.
Dick’s House of Sport is open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Father’s Day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21st.
