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.

This week WashingtonCountyInsider.com was also first to announce the closure of Office Max. Store Closing signs were posted at 1301 W. Paradise Drive.
Office Max has been a staple (pun intended) in the community since the store was a standalone building in 1998 and now Ross Dress for Less will be joining the trifecta of new stores in the West Bend Corporate Center.

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.
