I was at the Northgate shopping complex on Saturday, and checked in at the Sports Authority sporting goods store that is closing there (for bargains, of course*). The Colorado-based chain is going out of business. I guess they were hurt by the soft-ish economy, the competition from other chains, and by Amazon that is eating everyone’s lunch to some extent.
*I didn’t buy anything. I still have new-ish sneakers and enough t-shirts. If the discounts go to 40% or 50%, I may buy some sneakers or a new tennis racket, even though I play very infrequently now.
