While we are already back to school, I know that many of you are not. I also know that we kind of have a couple “back to school” seasons because it’s still summer here and hot! I was recently invited to Dick’s Sporting Goods and given a gift card to check out the store’s back to school offerings. And since I’m nice at sharing, I’m going to share 7 things you need to know about DICK’S Sporting Goods for back to school and more.
DICK’S Sporting Goods is the one-stop shop for all your Back To School needs. From the big to the little, they have you covered! Like socks. Are we the only family that always needs new socks?
While parents focus on supply lists and sales, kids are dreaming up their perfect back-to-school outfit to show off at their locker and in the hallways. Yes, you can find the first day of school outfit they’ve been wanting!
1. New Stylish Apparel for Kids
You will find quite the assortment of apparel and clothes for kids in the store and online. They have full outfit ideas to inspire an on-trend look as well as separates for when creativity strikes. Kids will find Nike shorts, The North Face jackets, adidas shirts, Champion Crew items and so many more. While there are clothes for all of the sports, there are also clothes for every day wear.
These graphic teas with fun colors, hologram-like foils and inspirational messages are perfect for my girls. With a price tag under $10, both kids and parents are happy.
DICK’S has the biggest wall of shoes I’ve seen in a store. I’m not a big shoe person (I mean, I like good shoes, but the brand isn’t what’s important), however, many kids like to have a certain shoe or a certain look. The store has you covered with a huge Air Max collection, Nike Zoom Freak, adidas Ultraboost, Vans and more. They also have a huge wall of sandals, cleats, basketball shoes and pretty much any athletic shoe you can think of.
I was also told if there’s a shoe that’s only online, they will order it in store for you and ship to the store just for you to try on. Of course, if you like it, you can buy it and if not, you don’t have to deal with a return.
Eventually, backpacks and lunch boxes wear out. We don’t buy a new one every year, but when it’s time to get a new one, we try to get one that we know is going to last. There are plenty of brands, colors and styles to chose from!
Near almost every section of the store you’ll find water bottles that are perfect for back to school…lids that can’t leak, spouts that flip up and heavily insulated. You can also pick up a new lunch box, thermos or pencil case. Don’t forget to purchase a combination lock if you need one for band, or P.E.
4. New DSG line
DSG is a new complete line of apparel exclusively sold at DICK’S. It is designed to outfit the entire family at a great price. When I walked through the kids section, I was secretly hoping to find some of the items in my size, too…I mean look at these workout leggings!
Not only does the DSG line have great prints and fabrics, and come in a nice for the wallet price points, but also one percent of all sales of DSG will be donated to DICK’S Foundation Sports Matter. DICK’s Foundation Sports Matter program helps to fund youth sports organizations in need across the country.
5. In-Store Services
DICK’S wants to make it easy on us! They offer the option to Buy Online Pick-up In Store (BOPIS). Not only will this help save you time, but you can pick everything out from home and not end up buying “extras”.
6. Best Price Guarantee
Did you find the same item advertised lower at another store? Show them the ad or price online and they will match the lowest price with their “Best Price Guarantee.”
7. Dick’s app “Scorecard”
You will definitely want to download the DICK’S app. Not only do you earn points with purchases but if you sync up your fitness tracker you also earn points based on the amount you move. These earned points will generate coupons towards your next purchase. I typically get a $10 off coupon every month!
