Review №1


Checking out at this location is usually very slow. I waited about 10 minutes to pay on my last visit. Academys strength is the large variety of products that are available. But youll be able to find better deals on major brand names at other places because Academy sells many of these items for the full, list price.

I was in the store on 4/12/2022 at 3:10pm. The first person I saw was and older man greeting people as they enter the store. He was very friendly. My next stop was in the fishing section. Found what I was looking for. Next stop the gun section. Only 1 person in the department at the a female, I ask if they had any Ruger Red Label over under 28 gauge. She said I dont think so. ( Would have liked to hear her say let me check and see.) I went on looking through the store. My daughter was looking for a small sized net for trout fishing. We could only find one that was dayglow orange, was a kids net. We go back to the gun department to ask if they have one in black. Now there is the one female and three males behind the counter. I ask I could ask a question they all looked at me and said there are a lot of nets on the aisle. To witch I replied Im looking for one like this but Im black could you check and see if you have any? The female looks on the computer and said no those are all we have. I had said we are looking for one for trout fishing. To witch a male sales person with curly reddish brown hair and beard said to me we dont sell that much trout fishing stuff. Wow this is a sporting goods store. (Then no one ask if they could help us with anything else out thank you have a good day. Let us know if we can help with anything.) They started talking like we had gone from the counter. Not friendly at all. My daughter and I continued looking around. About 10 minutes later we found a fanny pack my daughter liked but it didnt have any price tags on it or the shelf. I had to go back to the gun department for help. They were all still behind the counter talking. I just ask if someone could tell me how much it was. One of the other males said here I can sand he scanned it and said it $19.99 I replied thank you. No one said anything just kept talking like we werent even there, and kept talking. At this point no one in the store has said anything to us that showed anyone here appreciated us shopping here.We started looking around in the cooler section and a young man hows name is Dre ask how I was doing. I told him that Im doing fine thanks for asking. I told him that he was the only person in the store to say anything to us except for the older man greeting people at the door. We headed to the check out counter and waited in line for a few minutes. Then the cashier said Ill take you right here. Her name is Gwen, she is very friendly and ask us if we would like to apply for the academy credit card today you can save on todays order now. I told her no thank you. We talked as she checked us out. We paid and got our items she thank us for coming in today and enjoy the rest of our beautiful day.I have worked in retail for the last 46 years as a manager in the grocery stores. I believe that the people that get a head are the people that are treating people the way they want to be treated and will always be the reason customers come back to shop. Ill be looking for the people I have named in this review and NOT people like the unarmed. Because the named people will be making the difference in the way customers look at the company. Thank you go out to. Mr Dre, Ms Gwen and the man greeting at the door. He has a Name too Im just getting old sand dont remember it for witch Im very sorry. I will find out the next visit. Thank you for reading just believe they deserve to be recognized.

Review №5


Good store. My only complaint is that several times I have looked online and it says they have in things on stock that they don’t. I have even ordered them on my way to pick it up the same day get an email saying it’s cancelled because they don’t have it in stock. I live 45 minutes from the store so it ducks to place an order get charged and drive that far just to not get what I needed then have to wait days to get my $ back.

Went to get my wife a fishing license. Had to find a manager to do it. A little slow but it was fine.

Review №7


They have a most awesome greater at the door. Fast, friendly service. Made the difficult return much more pleasant.

Review №8


Like their store very much. Wish they would not move the fishing department so much. It makes things difficult to find. Prices are always great.

Review №9
