I have been recommending this shop for a very long time. Since then, the level of quality they have when it comes to the things they sell is still topnotch.

There is a reason why this place it has the word authority in its name. They have the power to drag me in and make me spend, spend, spend! Sports Authority is my go to place for all my sporting good needs. They have yet to disappoint, and for that reason alone I will remain a loyal customer. They offer items for everyone (the runner, basketball player, baseball star, exercise fanatic, kayaker, campers) This place really does have it all. \n\nOn my most recent visit I was looking for a pair of running shoes and I needed help! The thing is, although I like to think I am a runner, you know on the occasion I yank the speed on the treadmill up to 7.0 and run for fifteen minutes or so, the truth is I know very little about running and nothing about running shoes. As the salesmen approached me I began to share my story about wanting to become a runner. I told him I was looking for a lightweight airy pair of running shoes, which were reasonably priced. He told me that I was at the right place. Turns out he is a runner and knew just how to direct me. He first helped me determine my foot type, (turns out I am flat footed/pronated) and then he helped me find the perfect pair. Throughout my journey I probably tried on at least ten pairs before I found my new loves and I was impressed at how patient the salesman was with me. \n\nIve been shopping at Sports Authority for years and they have yet to fail me, in fact they typically exceed my expectations. \n\nI highly recommend this place to anyone, who needs anything, that has to do with any sports. Or recreational activities. You are sure to leave one happy camper!\n

Since I was a little kid, the Sports Authority has been a place that evokes excitement in me. In my tiny eight year old brain, I always put McDonald??s play-place adjacent to the Sports Authority. From camping tents to scuba gear to baseball bats to inflatable pool floats, the Sports Authority literally has anything and everything related to sports, entertainment, and the outdoors. As an adult, the excitement does not wane. You can buy an exercise bike in the same place as a new sports bra and running shorts. Looking for a bocce ball set? An elliptical machine? Golf clubs? No problem. Even their online store is welcoming; everything is neatly organized into categories and sub-categories, which come in handy to those of us who are OCD. I would say, however, that it is a destination for the average sports enthusiast. If you??re looking for the newest, hottest styles of sneakers, the Sports Authority should probably not be your first destination. I would also say that your shopping experience will vary by location, which for me is a negative attribute. When I walk into a Gap, or a Starbucks, or a Lululemon, the experience is generally the same no matter what. I don??t feel that way about the Sports Authority. Sometimes though, you just gotta roll the dice.
