Second Place: Disco Sports
Third Place: Green Top Sporting Goods
It may not always have what you're looking for. And you can find much of it cheaper — particularly the apparel — somewhere else. But Dick's Sporting Goods is simply there (five stores in Richmond). You have no choice but stop in before purchasing that new pair of running shoes, or the sweatpants, at J.C. Penney. And then you wind up perusing the camping gear, the fishing rods and baseball bats (wood is always better), even when you have no intentions of camping or playing baseball. And then you'll buy the folding chair with the attached rotating umbrella, the side cooler, cup holders and the retractable footrest. And you'll tell your wife you got it on sale, even though it wasn't and it cost you $69.99. Yes, we all love Dick's.
