Our family goes to "Dick's Sporting Goods" in Raleigh North Carolina, when we are looking for sports equipment. They have a good selection of merchandise from several different sports, as well as gift items for that sports-fan in your life. We have always found that their staff was knowledgeable and friendly, and the prices are competitive. When we are looking for a particular item in a particular sport, the staff have always come to the rescue, and if this store does not carry it, the staff has helped us locate it somewhere else. I would definitely recommend this store to the sports-lover.
