Shelves and shelves of everything from Wiffle balls to free weights to tennis racquets to jogging gear to golf tees fill the seven locations of our sports authority. Last time we stopped in, no fewer than three salespeople offered assistance before leaving us to browse undisturbed, which was just fine: Thanks to the huge orange overhead signs that point the way to the various kinds of equipment on offer, it’s always easy to find whatever gear you’re shopping for and get on with some real exercise.
