Dicks Sporting
I have never been a fan of this company long before their gun selling issue. A friend gave me a gift card there and I went yesterday. I literally could find nothing I wanted in there other than way over priced costa sunglasses. Seems like it is a whole lot of overpriced nothing in there. I saw a lot of kids with soccer moms so perhaps the outdoor guy is not their demographic.

They were my only option until Academy came to my town.

Haven't stepped foot in that store since. Not for political reasons but just because they suck as an outdoor store.

I used to go to Dicks for golf equipment a lot. The hunting and fishing sections have always been garbage, but now I don't step foot in dicks for anything.

I've never understood why anyone would shop there when you can get everything they sell cheaper somewhere else.

The guns just made it so I'll never walk in again. I never bought anything there the few times I've browsed the higher prices.

They have always been shitty. They were originally a golf store and branched out into kids sports apparel and "outdoors" stuff. Make bank off the kids stuff from china and basically just keep the outdoor stuff as something for dad to look at if he's not into golf while mom swipes his CC for $1200 in bat bags and cleats.

If you really don't appreciate what they've been doing, then you should use the gift card. They already have the money. Just buy something you could re-sell and list it on CL or ebay to get your money back.

I’ve never had a complaint about dick’s. They always have what I’m looking for and their employees are always very helpful.


It’s insane and hypocritical that some of you are angry that they exercise their rights.

They have the right to run their business as they would like but I will never step foot in another one again.

You can't get better deals on kids leisure clothes. You can get a big ol bag of name brand stuff for 250 bucks. Get the kids thru summer with not problem.

Went last week and were picking up stuff for 7 bucks a piece for shorts and shirts.

Their right to have higher prices than anyone is what kept me at bay originally.

They have now chosen a position. Ok, fine. I'm now choosing to never step inside their store again to view absurd high prices.

Pretty simple choices by both of us. Not angry nor do I care what they do. There will always be a place that wants me as a customer. It's just not Dicks.

re: Dicks Sporting
I can occasionally find decent buys on end of season stuff in their sporting goods. Selection is pitiful and normal process are sky high, but occasionally a deal can be had.

A few years back Alabama first passed the "Purple Paint" law for property marking. I could not get the right paint anywhere local. Home Improvement stores didn't carry it, Tractor supply, sporting goods, etc didn't have a clue what I was talking about. Walked through a DSG killing some time one day and they had a shelf full of it - all on clearance for like 50 cents a can.

Perhaps I am just too cheap to burn a 100 gift card on the over priced things I saw that I would consider.

That's always been the case with Dicks. The Field & Stream division (which is under the same roof in Lafayette) has some better stuff, and I actually shop there. But the Dick's side of the store has nothing for me.
