    Default Sports Shop's

    Not JJB etc.

    I used to love when there was independent Sports Shop's before all the big names took over and you could find Sportswear that was'nt the norm as such.
    Scarborough in the early 80s/90s had a few such great places I fondly recall. I just hope they may may a comeback, though I doubt it a lot though sadly

    we had a sports store called intersport.i assume thats independant.

    i think it was around 15 yrs since it was here in my town.

    it sold everything you could want.

    bought many things from it dartboard, a gym etc.

    There was an independent sports shop in our town but it closed down a good 30 years ago.

    In the 80s there was a sports shop in Rhyl called Clwyd Sports. I used to go in there when on holiday. I don't know if it is still there.

    There was an independent Sports Shop in the village where I grew up, I remember buying a tracksuit from there, a generic one. Oh and a sports bag.

    We just a new sports shop start up intersport,

    well its a new intersport store.

    The old in my town closed down around late nineties didnt think it would come back.

    Always thought it was one of the very best it sold footie stuff as well as rugby, cricket and even darts and dartboards.
    Darts where in a glass box,prob for safety reasons.

    Same here - I thought that Intersport was one of the best too Darren - but we don't have them in my area no more

    I found them a tad pricey , yeah - but qaulity-wise the things they had including Football Stuff was in another Leauge (to pardon the pun), especially say compared to say Sports Direct

    I suppose Whiteley's in Piccadilly Circus is independent (though huge)...

    A bit pricey but u dont mind if the product is off a high standard.


    I just wonder did intersport go bankrupt when my old store closed or did it simply close.

    I remember getting tons of weights from the shop.
