Default New Dick's store

Went to new Dick's sporting goods store today and was not impressed. No where near as good as Academy. What's everyone else's thought

I wasn't impressed either. Went in there Friday for the first time looking for a specific item. They did not it on the shelf and could not find anyone to ask about it. Picked up some terminal tackle and headed to the cashier station, where I had to wait for the next available cashier, of which there were two when I arrived. They appeared to be working in slow motion without regard to the line growing, waiting for them. Finally a third cashier arrives and I think the line will start moving, not. He had apparently been on break and was just returning, but did not have time to get a drink of water as he turned his back to those of us in line and took three or four swigs of water while chatting with his fellow cashier. Finally he signed on and acknowledged the growing line watching his every move and asked if help the next person in line, which was me.
Dick's sucks.

Sounds like the new store over there is about the same as others I have visited. Just to have something to do I have visited a few in other cities.
I don't pay any attention to the "other" sporting goods and clothes and head straight to the fishing section. What I have seen the selection it is limited and seems to be higher priced than Academy. Academy has much more to choose from and it's displayed better. Academy prices beat Bass Pro as well.

Not a big Dick's fan.

Their prices are high, their selection is low and they were the first to pull AR's off the shelf when Sandy Hook happened.

If I'm correct...didn't they also pull there inventory of AR's following the Newtown shooting? If that's still the case....another good reason not to shop there.

I believe i have visited two of them in other states. From what I saw prices were higher at both. Not impressed. I will continue to shop at Academy. Also not impressed with the way they pulled AR's.

Funny, I thought the "new" Academy is not as well stocked on what I want/need as the old one. I agree the new Dicks store has slightly higher prices but their selection of what I want/need is better. Guess it depend on what you are looking for. I buy mostly salt water stuff, seems like 80% of Academy's is directed toward freshwater or inland salt.
