Readers' Choice: Favorite Sporting Goods Store

Help us pick the most popular sporting goods store in this week's Readers' Choice contest on Darien Patch.

Last week saw the official opening of the Major League Baseball season (as well as the opening of a bar , right here in Fairfield County), and spring certainly is in the air.

Some would say it’s been in the unseasonably warm air since January.

So what lawn games and equipment will adorn our backyards, roof racks and town parks this summer?

This week, we’re asking you to tell us what’s your favorite spot to pick up sporting goods (scroll down for our poll), and more important—why (click on the business listing hyperlink below, and give it a rating and review for future local shoppers to find).

We will declare this week’s Readers’ Choice contest winners on Friday at 12 p.m., as per the rules (attached as PDF). Remember: ratings and reviews on the business listing page

Here’s our starter list, with one store in Darien——and a selection of stores from nearby communities (if you don’t see a business on this list that should be there, say so in the comments thread—we'll add it):

  • (Darien)
  • (Darien)

How could you omit the Darien Sport Shop! Their prices are competitive, their sales people are extremely knowledgeable and nice. Simply put, they are the best all around.

100% agree Charley. The Darien Sports Shop is the most well known store in town, we have people coming into town just to shop there, and has been serving out town since 1946. What was the criteria for the selection above?

The criteria is that they sell sports equipment. What sports equipment do they sell?

Ah, now I see it: http://www.dariensport.com/categories/Sports/ I didn't know. I'll add it.

I've just added several more stores: Darien Sport Shop, Orvis, Runner's Roost, The Compleat Angler and Gut Reaction.
