I frequent that location myself. Mostly I go across the street to Academy Sports. I sure liked Dick's when it started, bit now it is usually the last choice in local retailers.I have none locally, but went to one in Topeka KS and knew right off their prices were absolutely stupid meant for maximum profit and to Hell with the customer.
Dicks is well named. #%$^&* them.Dick's had a parking lot sale today right next to a restaurant my wife and I had just eaten at. Of course she dragged me over there because...you know...shoes.
Anyway, I see that in order to pay in cash you needed to go into the store to pay so I stroll in there and notice there are exactly 3 guns left on their otherwise empty gun racks. No bows, ammo sparse, and clearance signs everywhere.
An employee in his 60's came up and we started talking. He stated that they will no longer sell hunting gear of any kind. No guns, bows, hunting knives, ammo, cleaning supplies, camo, calls, etc.
He hesitated and then shook his said saying this is the queen bee's decision and it is obvious from internal communication it is a clear political stance. He then said the customers mostly hate it but all their competitors love it.
He also stated their other local location still has firearms. He wouldn't elaborate why and he may not know why either.
Apparently this started many months ago.
My gut tells me that their sporting good sales have tanked so much because of their anti 2A stance that they are now forced to lean into it rather than cave in.
I haven't spent any money at dick's until today (90% off some things!) and I now have reinforced my own decision.
