Re: Why Dick's Sporting Goods Sales Are Soaring

I try to shop at small independent stores. And we have several small sports stores around here. But I needed to buy lacrosse equipment for my son right around the time Dicks announced their ban on selling certain weapons. Not that they sell any weapons in my state, anyway. But I did buy his lacrosse stuff there. I know a lot of people who did similar things.  Only anecdotal, I know. But it’s nice to see their sales go up.

I only used Sports Authority to refill 30 oz. carbon dioxide tanks so I could make my own diet root beer. My tanks were the same kind used in paint ball guns.  Sports Authority was a lot cheaper than Dick's and it was much closer to my house.  As I recall, refills were about $6 at Sports Authority and $30 from the company that made my soda carbonator.  Now, Dick's is too far away and expensive for me to bother so I no longer make my own soda.

Irregardless of a competitor going out of business, couldn’t it be just as simple as consumers saying that they support Dick’s for taking a common sense approach to an issue and now they will show support by making purchases there?

Sports Authority was a Bain/Romney cluster bleep that was doomed to fail because of the way Bain/Romney use legalized theft...

 

Had one locally, but didn't enter the building due to it's being a Bain/Romney abomination until the last month sale when things sold for as little as 20% of what they sold for elsewhere.

   RWer's and NRA somehow forgot that many Americans love the outdoors and will gladly spend their cash to support Dick's Sporting Goods because of their  gun policy.

Why Dick's Sporting Goods Sales Are Soaring

Dick Sporting Good's soaring sales prove it can succeed without assault rifles 

 

 After inquiring of local FFL licensees, local retailers, and reasonably close local outlets of national chains, I now use Dick's for most everything and am more than willing to deal with shipping times and shipping costs.

 

Even a single life has always been infinitely more important than anyone's bottom line.
