Readers' Choice: Best Sporting Goods Store

With spring here, locals are participating in a variety of sports. But where do you go to get your needed supplies?

April is here and kids across Kings Park, Smithtown, Commack and Hauppauge are playing baseball, softball, lacrosse and soccer. While youngsters need cleats, bats, lacrosse sticks and gloves, the warm weather also brings out the bikers, boaters and sport fishers.

This week, Patch wants to know what sporting goods store you trust to buy your needed gear.

Readers’ Choice is a weekly feature where we ask you – our readers – to tell us your top picks on the businesses and local attractions that get your loyalty.
Each Monday we’ll list our nominees recommendations. Did we leave your go-to spot off the list? Go ahead and add it in comments.

On Friday we’ll tabulate all of the poll votes, comments, recent directory reviews and emails and crown a Reader’s Choice. Please only vote once in the poll, because any attempt to game the results could end up in your favorite businesses being disqualified.

Here are our nominees:

Port Jefferson Sporting Goods

Lacrosse Unlimited

Sports Authority, Smith Haven Mall

Dick's Sporting Goods

Modell's Sporting Goods

Sports Authority, Commack

Strike Zone

Grand Slam Tennis

Its hard to put all these as one vote since its mom and pop's secular stores against BIg box stores that carry full lines of everything else. If you broke them down to large chain and small local shops, I would have to go with Bike Discounters. Not only are they a neighbor, but give excellent PERSONAL service.
