It’s official – Sports Authority is no more. The Sports Authority bankruptcy is just the latest casualty in a growing list of brick-and-mortar stores that seem to be unable to compete with online retailers like Amazon and eBay these days.
This sporting goods and all of its merchandise is now the property of Dick’s Sporting Goods. When the sporting goods giant failed to work out a deal with creditors and lenders during its bankruptcy proceedings, the once great sporting goods giant was forced to auction off all assets. In the end, Dick’s Sporting Goods won with a bid of $15 million back in June.
Fast forward to today…
