Is Sports Authority’s Liquidation Sale Much Of A Sale?


THE SPORTS AUTHORITY IS GOING OUT OF BUSINESS AND THE SALE IS ON AS YOU MAY KNOW. YOU MAY HAVE EVEN SEEN THE ADS BUT DOES THAT MEAN YOU ARE GOING TO GET A DEAL? MAYBE NOT. DOROTHY TUCKER TAKES A LOOK AT HOW A LIQUIDATION SALE REALLY WORKS. SHOPPERS RUSHING IN TO SNAG BARGAINS AT SPORTS AUTHORITY LURED BY HUGE SIGNS PROMISING GOOD DEALS. GOLF BALLS, TENNIS BALLS, SWIMSUITS. JOSH BURBANK FIGURED HE SAVED FIVE TO TEN PERCENT AND WAS MORE THAN SATISFIED. I LOOKED ON AMAZON FOR MOST OF THE ITEMS I WAS LOOKING TO BUY AND KNEW EVERYTHING WOULD BE ON SALE. MOST OF THE STUFF WAS 10% OFF AND WE DIDN’T THINK IT WAS THAT GREAT OF A DEAL YET. IN FACT TYLER SAYS HE SAW BETTER DEALS ONLINE. LIKE A DRY FIT LONG SLEEVE NIKE I GOT FOR LIKE $25 IT WOULD HAVE BEEN $40 HERE. WE ALSO FOUND BETTER DEALS ONLINE. THIS 13 WOMEN’S RUNNING SHOE HAD A SHELF PRICE OF $149 EVEN WITH THE 10% GOING OUT OF BUSINESS DISCOUNT DROPPING INTO $135 A QUICK GOOGLE SEARCH SHOWED THE SAME SHOE FOR $119 AND STUMBLED ACROSS THIS CONFLICTING PRICE ON SALE FOR $99.99 BUT THE BOX HAD LISTED TO $89.99. WOULD YOU SHOP AT SPORTS AUTHORITY? GENERALLY LIQUIDATION SALES DO NOT OFFER GREAT DEALS. GRACE COMPLAINTS EXACTLY WHAT WE DISCOVERED PRICES ONLINE OR NEW INFLATED PRICES. THEY SAY DON’T BLAME SPORTS AUTHORITY. LIQUIDATIONS ARE OFTEN HANDLED BY THIRD PARTY COMPANIES THAT MAKE BIG MONEY OFF THE LIQUIDATION SALES. IF YOU ARE AMONG THE SHOPPERS WHO SPENT $90 MILLION ON SPORTS AUTHORITY GIFT CARDS GET TO THE STORES SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. AFTER THAT. YOU MIGHT JUST BE OUT OF LUCK. SPORTS AUTHORITY IS SCHEDULED TO CLOSE THE END OF AUGUST. SO WHEN SHOULD SHOP? EXPERTS SAY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE LOWEST PRICES WAIT UNTIL MID AUGUST BUT DON’T EXPECT A GOOD SELECTION.
