Readers' Choice: Where's the Best Place in the North Hills to Buy Sporting Goods?
With spring sports warming up, where do you recommend searching out deals on the gear? Which big box store in the area is your go-to? Is there a used-gear shop around town that more people should know about?
The warm spring (forget about the last few days) has us thinking about excuses to spend more time outdoors, immediately.
Our softball league should begin its season in North Park very soon. We should definitely do more biking and hiking to take advantage of some really great trails in North Park.
That makes us wonder where we should go to find the best deals in sporting equipment in the North Hills. We've got lots of options along McKnight Road: Dick's Sporting Goods, Gabriel Brothers, Kmart, Target and Toys 'R Us, to name a few.
There are also specialty shops, such as Scholl's Bicycle Center in West View.
Where else? What other places do you recommend, particularly for used equipment?
We’ll accept nominations on where to head in the North Hills until 5 p.m. Wednesday. On Thursday, we’ll publish a poll in which readers can vote for their favorite shop.
To nominate a business, simply leave your suggestion in the comment section, or you can find your favorite sporting goods business in our local directory and write a review. We'll choose the Readers' Choice winner on Friday.
