Dicks is for all intents and purposes, a 2-story Sports Authority.

They mostly sell exercise clothes and golf clubs. Also some way, way overpriced mountain bikes. Their guns, ammo, and hunting stuff has mostly been an afterthought in a small corner upstairs. Note that Sports Authority already closed up their doors two years ago.

In the age of Walmart and Amazon, pissing off even a small percentage of your customer base is a great way to go into the red. These types of business live and die by volume.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. said Tuesday it will stop selling firearms at 125 of its stores, further pulling back from the business after the retailer decided last year to tighten its policies around gun sales.

Dick’s has struggled with declining sales since its CEO Ed Stack made a public decision to stop selling guns to buyers under 21 and take assault-style weapons out of all stores after a fatal school shooting in Parkland, Fla. Dick’s is also working to stem sluggish sales as more shoppers buy sporting goods online.

They can probably make more money selling Colin Kaepernick t-shirts.

Removing all hunting related items including firearms and replacing that "section" with items more sought after still ain't getting me to go there anyways

They won’t be missed, at least by me. I prefer Walmart for my ammo needs.
