Dick’s Sporting Goods, the largest sporting goods retailer in the United States, currently occupies the entire distribution building at 3909 North Commerce Drive at Camp Creek Business Center, a 2.6-million-square-foot business park located three miles from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

In addition, a 3,300-foot extension of North Commerce Drive was recently opened.”
Developed and funded by Duke Realty, the three-lane road extension includes a signalized intersection at Washington Road and provides tenants immediate access to the Washington Road/I-285 interchange.
