Dunham’s Sports is a national sporting goods chain. According to the corporate website it has stores in over 20 states. There are multiple Dunham’s in the Washington County area including a shop on N. Spring Street in Beaver Dam in neighboring Dodge County. That store opened in 2010.
There are also stores in Brookfield, West Allis, Franklin, Sheboygan and on a history note, if you traveled to Fond du Lac, you’ll remember Dunham’s had a huge spot in the old Forest Mall.

For people who have a cabin up in Shawano, that community had a Dunham’s open in the former Kmart in 2016. Opposite the store is American Marine and next door is Maurices.
According to Dunham’s website the shop is looking for a Team Coordinator in US-WI-West Bend who wants to work in a “Fun, fast paced work environment, with variety in the day-to-day routine.” Click HERE for the job posting.
The store is expected to open in the July/August timeframe.
Current space available for such a large store is over by the West Bend Corporate Center which includes the former Boston Store/ MC Sports strip on Paradise Drive just west of Highway 45.
That corporate center and the neighboring standalone strip that used to be home to Pier 1 Imports is owned by City Pointe LLC of Brookfield which purchased the parcel in July 2021 for $3.6 million. The strip parcel on the south end of the property is currently home to Office Max, We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym, Chen’s Buffet, Hassleless Mattress, GameStop, and further down there’s a Walmart.
This is a working story, and more information will be posted when details become available.
