Dear Customers,

Sports Authority and its predecessor companies have been serving the sporting goods needs of our customers since 1919. It is with great sadness that we are intending to close all of our stores by the end of August.

We will be holding store closing sales at all of our locations that will allow you to take advantage of big discounts on great brands.

On behalf of the entire Sports Authority team, I would like to express our sincere appreciation to our customers for their years of loyalty. It has been a pleasure to serve you and your family.

Sincerely,


Michael Foss
Chief Executive Officer

That's sad news people are losing their jobs. SA was three years away from 100 years of service.

This is what they get for canceling all my orders. Let that be a lesson to the rest.

I don't think so. Most of them can go work in america's next top model or dancing with the stars.

Message from CEO. He knows he's an a$$shole. Not like he would be out of money.

They're pulling Gift cards scam just like radio shack.
I still see radio shack around but they don't accept their GC.

Here is the a$$hole:
