Sports Authority Declares Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

I received this gem of an email the other day. It makes sense given I return about 2/3rds of what I buy from Sports Authority. It doesn't help that walking in you feel like you're in a Toys'R'Us from the 90's with the buzzing fluorescent lights, the smell of plastic and the place just feeling messy.

This is in huge contrast to say, Dick's, which I have always loved the atmosphere despite in reality not being all that different. Oh well, I guess that's why I prefer Target to Wal-Mart too.

Essentially, you can't pile a bunch of crap into a store and hire part time kids and expect to be successful anymore.
