Dick’s is losing two major categories in 2019: hunting and Reebok. Removing hunting items from 125 stores Last year, Dick’s removed hunting items from 10 stores where it underperformed.   cant imagine why

Haven't been there since they pulled AR's, not that I would buy one there anyhow.  And I have never bought reebok, they don't make wide shoes.  We have hurt them by boycotting.  But their pres won't back down.

I dont think Dicks (DKS) is hurting.

Over the past 5 years stock was selling at a low of $24.48 to a high of $60.28.
Have my Googlefu on....  Did a search for when they said they will stop selling AR(s).
https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2018/11/29/gun-ban-dents-sales-dicks-sporting-goods/2152134002/
That was on 11/29, on 12/1 stock was selling at $28.30.

On 3/12 they announced they will stop selling guns. On 3/16 stock selling at $34.92

Today stock is selling at $37.49.

Moral is, stop shopping at Dick's Sporting Goods and support local small merchants, whether it be for guns, ammo, sneakers or sporting goods and clothing.

Haven't shopped there for years.

Last purchase there was years ago.  I had a rain check (several YEARS old) for 45 ammo 10 boxes @ 8.95 each.
Current price was $24.95/box.  Saved $160+. 

Had a steak dinner afterwards....
