I live in Massachusetts and it is a Friday. Three days ago, on Tuesday, I placed an order from sportsdirect for two personalized jerseys and they have already arrived exactly as they were ordered, with the standard $15 shipping. I had some reservations about ordering from these guys based on the reviews they received here, but now couldn't be happier and won't hesitate to give them my return business.
Stocking Sports Direct's usual range of the good (cut-price Adidas and Nike gear) the bad (obscenely coloured Ocean Pacific polo shirts and Airwalk trainers) and the odd (two-person golf umbrellas and day-glo ping pong balls) there is little special about this particular Liverpool One based branch, except for the unusual selection of football shirts available. Where your average branch of JJB or JD Sports might carry the odd Brazil, France or Netherlands shirt if you're lucky, here they have Ivory Coast, Mexico, Russia and more. The sizes can be a little hit and miss (a lot of XS or XXL and not much in between) and they rarely have the matching shorts or socks in, but still this is a great place to get hold of that obscure football shirt.
Also the last time I was there I picked up a perfectly decent Donnay squash racquet for less than £9 which is an absolute bargain. I still haven't used it yet but I've been busy alright, get off my back.
If you're really a sporty type of person, it is always a good idea to pop down to Sports Direct to purchase your goods, not only because you can grab a bargain but they sell a wide range of products for both men and women across all ages at fairly reasonable prices.
Sports Direct in Liverpool One has two big floors hosting a variety of clothes such as cycling and running gear, a trekking department and football jersey's. The upper floor has lots of sports trainers for all types of sports like football, boxing and tennis. Prices vary from cheap to expensive depending on the model and fashion trend. As well as this, there is a range of professional sports equipment and accessories (even for camping too) so the choice is all yours!
Sports direct is the perfect solution to most sporting bargain based needs.
Despite some decent competition in the surrounding area, this Sports Direct always seems to have a steady amount of customers in its typically sardine packed aisles. There are certianly some 'bargains' to be found but be wary of the now £5 reduced from £150 style products, if it really did ever sell for £150 why is it 5 quid now I have to keep asking myself.
That being said, it still does represent decent value for some of the bigger named brands, after all who actually needs this season squash racquet in comparison to last years?
It's not the trendiest shop on your high street, granted, especially when it's figurehead is the beer swilling cockney and most hated man in Newcastle but when you ignore Wayne and Waynetta Slob shopping for a new outfit for a do, Sports Direct is a good option for cheap sports goods.
Many of the brands here will not be top of the range but when I needed to invest in a new pair of footy boots I was impressed with the range but more importantly the prices - thankfully I am passed the age of looking for those endorsed by the biggest 'star' player!
And it's not just the usual suspects of sports gear that you will find at Sports Direct as they cater for a wide range of past times and hobbys such as fishing, boxing and golf. If you are a die hard enthusiast in these sports then you probably wont find what you need here but for beginners and amateurs it's a good place to get the gear to test the waters.
I did not have high hopes for Sports Direct on entry as I had visited these establishments before and found them to be poorly run and more than a little chaotic. This establishment in Liverpool One has elements of this madness but on the whole it left me feeling more than a little impressed.
Inside the store I found that there was quality sporting equipment and at prices which were considerably lower than most high street stores.
The staff here were absent but I managed to work my way through the madness and I was glad that I had made the effort as I managed to pick up quite a few bargains in the process.
This place needs a bit of a tidy up as its disorder does not sit well in Liverpool One but on the whole the quality and level of value is fantastic.
Sport's Direct predates, but is situated in the Liverpool ONE development. It is a large store which is crammed full of rails of sports wear, shoes, equipment and accessories. The store is always very busy so sometimes it can be difficult to get around the store. The queues at the tills are also often quite long because of this.
They sell a huge range of clothing for men, women or children. They sell tracksuits, shorts, jackets, t-shirts, vests, gym wear, socks, skirts, trousers and sports underwear. They also have a large selection of shoes and clothing from brands such as Nike, Vans, Converse, Adidas, Reebok, Dunlop, Rocket Dog and many more.
All the items on sale are quite cheap, and most of the rails have further reduction signs on them. You can pick up a decent pair of trainers for £20-£30 at Sports Direct. The staff are friendly and helpful despite being a little harassed with the shop being so busy.
The prices have started to go up and the selection has come down.
I used to get last seasons footie shirts for less than £10. Now I'm looking at £20-£30.
The price of the clothes has gone up too much. I was looking at some crap brand jogging bottoms that were £15. I would pay that for Nike or Adidas put not for Patrick or Admiral.
It is going the way of JJB. Soon to be another forgotten chain of stores.
HUGE sports store selling all kinds of sporting goods. Spread over 3 floors, this place is enormous. All the goods are very very crowded together though. It's reallyhard to navigate around, there is so much stuff everywhere! They do have some really good bargains though.There's a lot of name branded stuff in here,including Nike and Adidas. They have a wide selection of both male and female clothing and trainers and also sell other stuff like golf equipment, footballs and even bikes. There are some real bargains to be had especially if you like your names. It's probably not the latest stuff but the prices are far better than other sports shops.
Sports Dirext is a small store on the Kingston Retail park. It sells a range of ladies, mens and childrens sports goods at value prices.
The range in this store doesn't seem to be brilliant. What stock there is seems to be maily rejects, things no-one else wants. The only thing really worth looking at is trainers, but sometimes there is that little money off it might not be worth it. Not somewhere i would recommend for sports goods.
This shop has the least customer service of anyhwere I've ever been. They're not rude; they just don't seem to understand that their main purpose is to serve customers and take their money when they offer it.
It may be that they don't have enough staff, but you should serve people before tidying shelves etc.
I waited for over a month but got no goods. Sports Direct said that the carrier delivered the goods. I believe that the carrier stole the goods. Sports Direct did not care that I never got the goods. No refund and no goods. They don't even care that I reported them to watchdog. I am going to take them to court, how sad. Anyone posting a good review on here should wait until the carrier steals their goods. Sports Direct don't give a s**t about their customers then.
This place is a really good spot to regularly go (if you have time) for a mooch. They don't just sell sports stuff, which is what you'd think if you just passed by, by keep going past the timberland and lonsdale stock and you'll find a really amazing selection of gifts and branded clothes. They sell dior trousers for example, and a lot of golddigga stuff for women (women's stuff is upstairs) and the kids section is amazing. A lot of barbie branded clothing, as well as names like Thomas the Tank Engine or Scooby Do as well as the sport stuff like nike too. And they don't just do trainers. They're worth a visit if you fancy casual shoes too - they were selling High School Musical Boots for kids the other day, at about 50% or the RRP. A good find. You won't ALWAYS see something you like in here, but if you have the time its worth checking in and having a look.
Sports direct is one of the newish stores in wakefield`s riding centre. Formally known as Sports Soccer i think. This store has a variety of sports clothing as well as footwear at discounted prices. Shopping in this store can be quite difficult at the displays are shoved so closely together that you cant actually get through. Disabled access in the store must be a nightmare because of this. Most of the clothing is the likes of everlast, umbro and donnay which are really cheap. Great store for footwear but top branded clothing seems more expensive that other shops
