Have any of you ever actually tried to BUY something in person at Dick's? I have tried and failed multiple times.

* I can never find anyone to help me that knows a single go dammed thing.
* Trying to buy boots there was nowhere to sit down and put them on
* The boots were CLAMPED together with a security tag anyway
* Some boots are over there, others are WAY over there
* There's no price on these
* No I can't tell you what we have in stock


Maybe it's just my local store, but JEEZUS after two visits I now hate them with the passion of a thousand white hot suns.

If they have a good enough sale I will consider mail order.

I didn't take this photo but I could have. It would be fun to set up a camera that catch peoples' expressions when they see this sign for the first time.

/never been in Dick's because that's not how dicks work.

They're going to need all those employees just to handle all the Yeti Coolers I have apparently won (according to the many emails I receive on a daily basis.)

I had two positive experiences at my local Dick's in the past month. Trying to get right with my feet. Help was good, sale price $30 less than the manufacturer online, and shoes in my size. Checkout went smooth and no real issues that come to mind.

Mine hires High School kids.  So the stand in a group and talk, and act like teenagers when you ask for help.  Its more fun when the line is 10-12 folks deep and there is 6 kids at 2 registers talking rather than checking folks out.

Ours seems pretty good.  It's pretty much the only sporting goods option outside of the internet, so we have no choice.  But never had any trouble finding what we needed, other than kid's baseball cleats last spring.  However, I think that was more our fault in waiting too long to get them.

Dicks is always the place where I go to see something in person before buying it 25-30% cheaper somewhere else.

I'd still got there for that.

I've watched The Boys and beg to differ.
