    Thoughts from the Lay man

    Love the store. Has quality goods and apparel at good prices. Golf section rivals any golf pro shop. Love the fact that they are free standing buildings and not used as 'anchor' stores in upscale, expensive malls. The convenience is there, but smart shoppers will drive to Dicks instead of Galyans.

    I'm watching it for now, but I think earnings will shoot up for simple reasons. As lifestyles change, so do some of our 'wants'. Instead of families taking big-ticket vacations, perhaps some camping, fishing, golf, bowling etc trips might increase. People can find all their needs here. As the economy remains stagnant, the Disney vacations and Caribbean cruises might give way to smaller vacations.

    A bit simplistic and long-winded!

    Thoughts!!
