I was looking around and found that even more D--k's Sporting Goods stores are closing - West Mifflin and Springfield ones being among the latest. What's going on here? Why are we seeing such an uptick in closing stores? I'd lie if I said I wasn't worried...

Just went to the d—s Sporting Goods in Aurora, IL to browse the Fishing Dept. where I always spend more $$$ than I should only to find it's non-existent! Apparently if they don't sell guns they just drop that entire Dept.! Utterly ridiculous so apparently they won't be getting my business anymore...that is unless you want to buy "Pickleball" equipment, of which they have an ample supply!! What is this world coming too...😵
I have to listen to customers complaining about how we're not selling certain firearms anymore since we're right across from an Academy store.
That probably has something to do with it.
Well, let's consider the obvious...They took a stance and placed politics above business when they banned all sorts of firearms and firearm accessories, and basically took a stance against the 2nd Amendment. It pays to stay gray.. STAY OUT OF POLITICS! Actions have consequences.
It's no surprise that their sales are in the gutter, and have impacted such a large customer base. It's also not surprising that they have overpriced merchandise, that you can purchase for much cheaper at Amazon, Walmart, and other retailors. It will be curious to see where this company will be in the next five years. My guess would be more store closures...
