Moonshine,

   It just gives me that much more of a reason, to never go into Dick's Sporting Goods ever again.  I know there are a lot of other sportsman who think the same way.

You could look at it that way...or you could look at it as a retailer looking at part of their offerings that isn't making them as much money as other things they sell.

I've been in  Dick's about three times in my life...I realized that their selection of guns held zero interest to me,their ammo was the typical too-fast/too heavy a load, their fishing section was generic and mid range (and that's a charitable assessment) and that they had nothing to offer me.

Generic, in fact, describes what they sell, across the board, IMO.

But they made all those choices because that's what sells in the places they have their stores.  I was never going to be their target customer, and it made no financial sense for them to try to cultivate me.

 

I can't get upset at a company for making a business decision.  Makes no sense to tie up floor space with low margin product.

Just found out this morning that Tim Hortons raised the cost of their large coffee to $2.25.....which concerns me more than any Dicks.

Dicks was never my kind of store.  Walk in, walk out.

You might want to rephrase that... 😉

Yep.  Same here.

Been in a Dick's once, bought nothing.  Have called them a few times to see if they had what I was looking for, no success.  Far as I'm concerned, they don't exist.
