    Who ever named Dick's could not have picked a better name. You shop there and you willbe DICKED. I went in and found someting for a friends birthday and when I got home checked the internet and found out that Dick's was 48% higher. I don't mind seeing say 10 20% diff but 48%+ is out of line. How do they stay in buisness? I always thought they were high when they opened up but now they have proven it.

    Many retailers "stay in business" by selling products that have a high mark up to purchasers who are not well informed.

    Years ago it seemed to me that there were many "discount" or "cut rate" sporting goods stores with out of the way locations and inexpensive stores. It now seems to me that they have all become "full price" retailers with elaborate stores and high rent locations.
