    Default Dick's sporting stores

    Looks like they're finding it necessary to close some stores.

    I wonder why??

    All those new voters coming across the borer and heading for FL, WI, MI, and PA will make the GOP effort worthless.

    Ours is closing because its lease is up. The local government basically bribed a bunch of businesses with economic incentives to locate in a new mega strip-mall complex it was also subsidizing to try to create low skill jobs for the area. Those deals are expiring and several places, including Dick's have announced they are closing.

    That's a shame.

    Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent

    Was it a bribe or was it an incentive? They are different.

    I am not for any American business going belly-up, but Dicks cannot compete with Academy in Ft. Smith, AR if they restrict the kinds of guns they sell....and they do. I suspect they’ll shuffle off to parts of the ountey where they have their niche of customers who buy lots of running shoes and leg warmers and such. I hope they succeed. American companies succeeding means jobs and revenue for our government.

    A lot of stores saw disappointing holiday sales, including JC Penney which has announced store closures. People are buying more online, it is the future.

    This has nothing to do with Dick’s politics.
    Thatís why Iím so screwed up, because I had a father who pushed me so hard,Ē Trump acknowledged in 2007, in a brief and rare moment of self-awareness.

    You wish it didn't have anything to do with their politics.

There are plenty of people who feel there was dishonesty about the whole thing, including vastly understating to the public the true cost of the "incentives" being offered and vastly overestimating the number of jobs to be created and additional revenues that would be generated. How shocking it was for people to figure out that a dollar spent at Dick's doesn't generate any more revenue than a dollar spent at Walmart, Dunhams, or the little niche sporting goods stores.

    No one cares about feelings only the facts. Do you have any facts that bribes were made?

    It appears to have slowed them down, but they are reinventing themselves, their stock is up and they are recovering.

    Dishonesty is part of bribery, dolt, so if people feel this was done dishonestly then a threshold was crossed.

    So they're changing their politics based on economics, huh?
