The Sports Authority poor customer service and a rip-off

Just the plug

I ordered a Coleman cooler and power plug from their online site as a gift for my inlaws. The plug arrived within 4 days but after 2 weeks the cooler had not.

After calling the 800 number I was told that the cooler was not in stock and my order had been cancelled. I was not made aware of this by anyone in the company before I called.

When transferred to a specialist I was treated to condescending words likeoh and oh, my instead of answers or a suggestion of how this matter could be resolved.

I have found their customer service to be horrible. With so many online companies I suggest people choose one other than The Sports Authority.

#1 UPDATE Employee

one thing you may not know...

AUTHOR: one1one - (United States of America)

One thing that you may not know is that the website for Sports Authority is not actually run by Sports Authority.  It is run by a seperate company that pays Sports Authority to use its name. 

It is the same company that runs d**k's Sporting Goods',,, and a host of other companies' websites.

Hope this helps!
