Sports Authority Thanksgiving & Black Friday sale includes clothes, shoes, treadmills, more

Sports Authority is joining the long list of stores opening Thanksgiving night, but it's offering many of its specials on Thursday and Friday.

Most Sports Authority locations will open on Thanksgiving night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., but if you want to shop at home, Sports Authority said its Black Friday doorbusters will be available beginning at 10:01 p.m. Wednesday night at www.sportsauthority.com.

Here are Sports Authority's Black Friday doorbusters (available in stores on Thursday & Friday):

- Buy one, get one at 50% off men’s, women’s and kids’ footwear (You may want to go a day or two early to try on shoes so you know what you want when you get there.)

- Buy one, get one free balls (soccer balls, basketballs, etc...)

- 50% off Nike Men’s and Women’s fleece apparel

- 30% - 50% off the entire stock of toys (includes remote-controlled helicopters, NERF guns, etc...)

- Half-off kids’ Reaction mountain bikes

- 50% off outerwear by Slalom, Alpine Design, Gerry and Sims

- Alpine Design 45-degree sleeping bags for $11.99. You wouldn't want these for backpacking or winter, but they might be great if the kids want to sleep in the backyard next summer. Buy it now and give it as a gift for a birthday.

Sports Authority also has deals on ellipticals, treadmills, clothes, gear and lots more. It's worth reading through their ad, just make sure you do some comparison shopping before you go. Remember, just because an item is half-price or $500 off, that doesn't make it a good deal.
