    Help us out--most Cyclone-friendly sports store in Des Moines?

    Hey all:

    Currently investigating this for us, but tough to tell online since we live in California. Which of the large sports stores in Des Moines have a substantial Cyclone section and the best service? I'm looking at the Scheels, Bass Pro, DicksSporting, and similar stores, but wanted to get the community opinion before going further. PM or email if you need to. Thanks!

    I am gonna assume it is because you wanna get your merchandise out there? So that would remove Cy's Locker Room from contention right?

    I have not been to Dick's Sporting Goods in WDM, so not sure. One thing I notice about Scheel's is that at least they seem to have about the same amount of Cyclone stuff as Hok crap. I was in the Kohl's by Valley West yesterday and was just appalled. Appeared to be about 100 times more Hok crap in a store about 45 minutes from Ames. Bad thing about Scheel's is that it is expensive.

    I would agree with this. Scheel's probably has the largest selection of ISU gear in the metro area. Most stores like MC Sports or Sports Authority might have a few tees, hoodies, and hats, but that's about it.

    My mom works in retail in WDM, she says at their store they always have more Hok stuff on the floor, but usually they receive the same amount, ISU gear just sells faster. However, with our FB season in the toilet, I could see Kohl's loading up on Hok gear.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Thanks for the info so far. I am strictly focused on Des Moines as I know what Ames offers. Any experiences with Bass Pro as that is a store I've never been to. Do they have lots of Cyclone gear?

    I went to Dicks Sporting goods the 2nd day it opened and they had a large hawkeye section and hardly any cyclone stuff (which surprised me because CFH was coming to do autographs) . I was pretty upset and when walking out some guy semi-dressed up asked how we like the store (im assuming he was a gm or some big wig since it was grand opening) and told him that i was disappointed and he claimed that their truck didn't come in and that they were supposed to be receiving more.

    I haven't been in there for about two years so not sure. My impression was there wasn't a lot of Cyclone or Hok gear, but I always get tired in that place with the husband and sons looking at fishing gear and just go sit somewhere. It is large, maybe I was missing something.

    Scheels has the biggest selection and is on par with the Hawk offerings.

    Bass Pro just doesn't carry a lot of sports apparel, regardless of team.

    Bass Pro might not be a bad idea... maybe get in with them at a better deal. But I will give my opinion living in Council Bluffs, I always stop at Sheels in DM a couple times a year to get my Cyclone gear.

    Does Scheels still have the ISU stuff in the back? They used to have the Squakeye and Cyclone stuff side by side. A few aisles of each. But I thought they moved the ISU stuff behind?

    I was in Dick's earlier this week and they had very little Cyclone stuff compared to Hok. For those thinking that Scheels is expensive (which is true BTW) just wait until you walk into Dick's. You can get the exact same thing from Scheels that you can from Dick's, but cheaper. (Then you can get it even cheaper online from Cy's Locker Room / Fanatics.)
