    So it appears all sports authority locations will be liquidating. I heard some may be selling their display cases. Has anyone had any luck with his or know anyone who has. I've just heard some hearsay so wanted to clarify. I have two stores locally and was going to talk to the manager tomorrow of each.

    Near me in Fl. They said another company has a deal in place to buy all racks and furniture used for displays.

    The one closest to me was on the first round of closures... I haven't bothered visiting the store.

    Yep. All are closing... Some locations were already being closed before the recent announcement was made.

    The location a mile from me here at the dealership has their bankruptcy sale starting today. I may wander down tomorrow morning and see what's going on.

    If I can't absolutely steal anything I won't bother. Usually the longer the sale goes the better the discounts but the stuff left isn't all that great.

    That's why I no longer do going out of business sales. The prices don't seem to be right. Or the stock is almost non-existent.

    We just had a Gander Mountain close up here, Q, and it was the pricing. They started at 20% off the entire store and held it for 2 weeks, and their prices were normally high, so you were getting nothing. But the wolves picked anyway, and by the time they got to 60% there were some mis-matched wool hunting socks and some kayak gear left. My sister went and left frustrated in about 5 minutes. I feel the same about them as you do.

    I avoid them like weddings. :lazy:
