TAMPA, Fla. -- April 23, 2013

WestShore Plaza is pleased to announce DICK’S Sporting Goods will open a
prototype store at the center, opening in 2014.

According to Jay Botsch, general manager, WestShore Plaza, “We are pleased to
welcome the newest DICK’S Sporting Goods concept to the center. As their
flagship in the Tampa-Clearwater area, we are certain the store will be a draw
to the active family shopper looking for great athletic brands.”

The new store will be located near the west entrance, taking the space held by
Saks Fifth Avenue. DICK’S Sporting Goods is the most recent addition to the
popular center and comes on the heels of the opening of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.
During the past six months, the center has also added Little Greek, H&M, APEX
by Sunglass Hut, Perfumania and a newly renovated prototype from Ann Taylor.
WestShore also features one of the best restaurant line ups in the area with
PF Chang’s China Bistro, Maggiano’s Little Italy, The Palm Restaurant,
Mitchell’s Fish Market, Seasons 52 and Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.

“In this digital environment, we’re continually looking to add tenants that
offer an experience or provide something that you can’t get online. Adding
DICK’S Sporting Goods and Grimaldi’s Pizzeria reflect this strategy,” added
Botsch. “You can’t grab a slice of pizza or test a new set of clubs online.”
