Bob Smith Sporting Goods US Map & Phone & Address
9 Spring Lane, Boston; (617) 426-4440
Hidden away in the Financial District, Bob Smith’s is, well, hard to hide. It’s so big one of the largest sporting goods stores in the area.
They specialize in running, skiing, tennis, fishing, rollerblades, and more.
While these sports are non-competitive, Smith’s everyday prices are lower, in fact, than most department stores. It’s not all rock-bottom; their main claim to fame is selection and service. Still, they do get special
Bicycle Workshop Good prices on new bikes and one of the larger selections of used bikes around.
Centre Ski and Sports Tons of new and used skiing gear in the winter, bicycles and rollerblades in summer. Small-shop service, to boot.
Hilton’s Tent City Five floors of super deals on camping and sports gear should qualify this place for its own zip code.
Play It Again Sports A consignment store for sports equipment. Find a new or used bargain, or bring in that hockey stick you bought on a whim and never used.
Sports Replay Behind and below the Ski Market near BU, this place sells all kinds of equipment that folks have traded in upstairs. Good for skis, bikes, tennis, and rollerblades closeout stocks, where you can really save. Reebok sneakers for $29 to $39, Nike clothing, and lots of tennis racquets as low as $24.95 for a fully-strung Kennex.
And every February they hold their annual Ground Hog Ski Sale to clear out their surplus on skis, boots, parkas and accessories by all the big-name makers. Some are reduced 80% to 90% off their original prices, with skis starting at just $20. Keep an eye out for the ad in the sports section. Open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a m. to 6 p.m Saturdays from 10-5.
