The shop I went in was so crowded, I really had no chance of finding a suitable pair of boots.

I can only liken my recent experience at Sports World to feeding time at the zoo. I went in looking for a pair of football boots and some sports shorts - I came out empty handed, with a possible bruised rib. Ironically, the majority of the customers in store have probably never taken part in sports in their life. The overriding feel of this shop is that it is no more than a warehouse of bargains; and take note - if you want the bargains, you're going to face heavyweight competition. The shop I went in was so crowded, I really had no chance of finding a suitable pair of boots. There appeared to be a good selection at very good prices; but after hovering around ...

I have been using sports direct since having children. My sisters both used the store near to us at Doncaster Lakeside (known as Lilywhite's) and I have also used a store at Crystal Peaks in Sheffield. I find that they sell a good range of sportswear, sports equipment, and clothing for kids that have got characters like Thomas the Tank engine and Scooby Doo on them. An example of some items I have bought from the store are: wooly hats and gloves for my kids, baseball caps in the summer for children and adults, lots of tracksuit bottoms, sports T shirts for me and the kids, and swimwear for all of us. The store always seems a little overcrowded to ... Read the complete review

I've never used Sports Direct's web site but I have visited many of their stores. I find that they sell a wide range of branded goods at really reasonable prices, sometimes less than half the recommended retail price.

They also sell a wide range of goods within each brand from t-shirts to rucksacks, trainers to waterproof jackets, suitcases to footballs and the stock is always changing. I've never had a problem with any of the items I've bought from them and I've bought quite a few items, mainly Karrimor trainers, but I've also bought jackets, golf equipment and camping gear. All the items .. Read the complete review

Avoid this organisation - total lack of customer focus, staff training and service non existent and poor ability to satisfy customer needs - AVOID - or be disappointed. Bought goods in excess of £100 in value and took two faulty low cost (£8 together) items back for refund - would not oblige or budge in any way. Offered vouchers but I wanted a refund - as is my right. Extremely rude and unhelpful staff and manager.
