Chick’s vs. Dick’s


Last year, Dick’s Sporting Goods bought Chick’s Sporting Goods. According to the Orange County Register, the four Chick’s locations in Orange County, including the one in Tustin that I shop at, will all be replaced by Dick’s by the second half of 2009.

I’m not happy about this. Oh, I know there are people who like Dick’s, and there are people who are 50-50 on the matter and can go either way, but there are also a lot of people like me who really prefer Chick’s.

In fact, I’ve been doing Chick’s for so long that I don’t see how I’m ever going to get used to Dick’s.

    You’ll need to learn to relax. You may find you like Dick’s even more than Chick’s after you have a chance to experience Dick’s.

    Hi MS –

    I’m not so sure about that. I’ve seen quite a few Dick’s, and there wasn’t anything that appealed to me as a consumer.

    Have you had a chance to compare the two yourself, playa?
