Sports Authority Review
The company now called Sports Authority owes its foundation to several other chains that operated over the years. Nathan Gart started a company in the 1920s that sold fishing poles and equipment in Colorado. Sportmart and Oshman's Sporting Goods started in later years but merged with the Gart Sports Company. Sports Authority then opened in Florida and quickly became the state's largest sporting goods chain. Though Kmart later bought the chain, it now operates as a separate company. Sports Authority acquired Garts Sports Company, which gave it ownership of all related sporting goods stores. All those shops now operate under the Sports Authority name, which gives it more than 400 locations across the country.
Though you might expect the site to sell standard equipment and gear like Dick's Sporting Goods and MC Sports sells, the Sports Authority website actually features some unique items too. Shop the website via the links that send you to different category pages across the top of the screen. Those buttons let you shop for fitness products, clothing, shoes, accessories, team sports equipment, action sports product, golf supplies, games, the outdoors or the fan shop. Many customers turn to the Sports Authority website because its fan shop lets them find apparel and gear relating to teams all across the country. You can shop according to sports organization or look for merchandise relating to popular teams, including the Chicago Bulls, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos or Anaheim Ducks.
Sports Authority also has its own line of products like the BodyFit line. The company designed this equipment for shoppers who want to get in shape from the comfort of their own homes. In the following video, called Introducing BodyFit by Sports Authority, you can see how you might use some of that equipment in your home to lose weight and get in shape.
Sports Authority also offers a unique collection of games for those who love the outdoors. This section features water guns, pool tables and other games for your home game room, trampolines, disc golf supplies and even toys. Search for products that you can take with you when tailgating before a big game or toys that you can use during a birthday party or family reunion. You'll also find remote control drones that you can use at home or in your yard.
