Time to get informed:
The CEO of DICK’s Sporting Goods says company will provide $4,000 in travel expenses for employees in states where abortion is now illegal to go to a state where care is legal.
Oklahoma is one of those states. Dick’s has four stores in OKC metro.

Curious to get your opinion…
Will you continue to shop at Dicks?
