The nominations are in, the gauntlet has been thrown down and now it's time for you to lay it on the line: Where is the best place to buy sporting goods?
We had three nominations this week, two popular in-town choices used by many local residents and one chain store with locations nearby in Meriden, Plainville and Newington that has made a name for itself with the slogan "the season starts here."
The nomination phase started a little slow but Tuesday contributions helped push the number of nominations to five within the comments section. If you don't see your favorite sporting goods store on this list, make sure you add it in the comments section below and be sure to come by 5 p.m. next Wednesday to help get your top choice added to our weekly list of candidates.
So here are your options for this week's category:
- Southington Athletic Shop, 1156 Meriden-Waterbury Road in Plantsville.
- Dick's Sporting Goods, 470 Lewis Ave. in Meriden.
Patch updates its "Patch Places" directory constantly, so if your business is not linked above, we will add it as soon as possible.
