SportsDirect.com: Review and rate

Sports Direct is a chain of sports stores that sports goods a cheap prices. They have over 470 stores under various trading names including Sports World, Lillywhites, Gilesports and Donnay International. Stores are located all over the UK as well as in Ireland, Belgium, Holland and Slovenia. One of the main complaints about shopping in Sports Direct is the often cramped layout of the store, as well as, the fact that it is often very busy. This combination can't make for a particularly enjoyable shopping experience, however, it may come as good news that Sports Direct also has an online store. This article will review this.

The website

Just like the stores, SportsDirect.com has a massive range of items for sale with products available for just about all sports including football, rugby, golf and tennis. There are ranges available for adult men and women as well as juniors and the website stocks shirts and kits for all of the top U.K football teams. Just like the high street stores, SportsDirect.com have extensive ranges of Everlast and Lonsdale items.

Positive points

Fast delivery and cheap prices SportsDirect.com promises to have all the items delivered between two to five days and for the most part, they seem to stick to this promise. Just like the stores, items are available at extremely low prices with Sports Direct often running offers with huge price cuts. The trainers often run at particularly low prices and there are often massive price cuts on expensive items, such as football boots, golf clubs and tennis racquets, all from top brand names such as Nike and Adidas. Sports Direct has always been very good for shoes for running and therefore, delivers shoes direct to your door as well. The Lonsdale brand in particular, is often sold at very reasonable prices.

Negative points

Credit receipts As with their stores, be aware when purchasing items from SportsDirect.com as Sports Direct do not give cash refunds on returned items. Instead, they give credit receipts which means that you can only re-spend the 'money' that you get back in their store.
Inability to try to the item before purchase An obvious negative aspect of buying items from SportsDirect.com, or any online company is that you cannot try items of clothing on before you buy them. Therefore, if you buy an item and it doesn't fit, be aware that you may face a very pain-staking process in order to get any kind of satisfactory refund. Therefore, only buy items which you know definitely do not have a likelihood of needing to be sent back!
