Back in 1937, Dunham’s Sports was just a fishing store. Today Dunham’s Sports offers a place for athletes to purchase sports supplies. Dunham’s Sports opened in the old JCPenney on July 2, 2022, and they had no challenge taking up this ample space. 


As you walk in, there are walls of softball and baseball helmets to the right, a whole wall of Kayaks, and further down, there is even exercising equipment. Dunham’s also offers stuff for activities that aren’t quite common here, such as bow fishing.


They offer name brand clothing such as Fila, Adidas, Puma, Under Armour and Carhart. Dunham’s has a whole wall of Crocs and Hey Dudes in every size and color. 


Lastly, Dunham’s offers a team and group program. These programs allow you to save on equipment, apparel, and more for your team. With these programs, Dunham’s gives 10 percent off discount purchases, 20 percent off coupons, updates on new products and updated emails on when discounts expire. 


Dunham’s is located at the Cross County Mall on 700 Broadway Avenue East in Mattoon, and they are open from 9 am to 9p.m on Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
