The Big 5 Sporting Goods in El Cerrito has closed a few months ago and I feel so sorry for the employees who lost their jobs to this closure. I had a similar experience with my own store and I can safely say that it's not a good feeling seeing your... — read more
Pity that the store on Calaveras Blvd closed. That was the best store of its kind in Milpitas so we all still hope that it might reopen down the line. It only closed recently as well so there might be a chance still for it to make a comeback.
Not sure if they shuttered this year or in late 2020. Either way the 205 E 4th St store is gone now.
Which stores have closed last year?
Big 5 Sporting Goods will be closing next year in January in Redwood City. Looks like that their Peninsula Boardwalk store just couldn't stay open while the Sports Basement operated right next to them. Shame, I prefer Big 5 over Sports Basement.
What in the world went wrong so that the Big 5 Sporting Goods has shuttered unexpectedly in Los Angeles' Beverly Grove on the Wilshire Boulevard? It's a head-scratcher for sure. Love their stores. Oh well, I will try to support their other locations. — read more
Hearing a store is closing because of outside influences is always so disheartening to hear. Supposedly a freeway expansion interfered with their business this January and they decided they were better off closing it altogether. I still... — read more
They must have closed in the last month or so since I was there in June buying a new bike for my nephew. No clue as to why they would close in Pasadena. They did rather well for themselves with their store on E Colorado Blvd.
Anyone with a list of Big 5 Sporting Goods stores that will close over the next few months? I'm asking anyone who is willing to listen but nobody seems to know anything. Is that curious or is Big 5 simply in a good place right now with no closings?
Here is my prediction - Big 5 will close all stores in 2018. It's likely this will happen in the first or second quarter. If you look at what happened with the competitors, you'll figure out that we cannot sustain our business. Even Nike is having... — read more
The list is as follows: Plainview, Lubbock, Odessa, Stephenville, Amarillo and Plainview
Do you have a list with stores Big 5 will be closing over next six months. I am specifically interested in California but if you have a bigger list that's great too. I think that with us not doing financially well we'll have to downsize quickly and... — read more
Anyone knows which location is closing here in Sacramento? I think there are three locations but only one will be closing - which one is it?
All of them closed? Or only some Big 5 stores will close in 2017? What's your prediction right now? How about California? I think Big 5 has only presence on the West Coast and some western states (e.g., Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona and Nevada)... — read more
That's the rumor, many sports gear chain are dying - look what happened with Sport Chalet and Sports Authority - job cuts, store closures, things are getting worse every day.
