Copeland Sports

Copeland's is a huge space, more like a department store than a breezy warehouse, situated on Market at 5th. This is the high-energy haven for those who need to whack, swing, lift, pump, dribble, ollie, or rip. While they do carry a decent selection of camping, running, and cycling gear, the focus here is on clothes and equipment for baseball, basketball, tennis, golf, water sports, snow sports, and boards-skate and snow, that is.

For all its department store demeanor-climate-control, Top 40 radio, intercoms-Copeland's still keeps its prices pretty low and definitely carries a great selection of well-trusted brands and equipment. From K Swiss to K2, Sector Nine to Slumberjack, they are pretty much guaranteed to have at least one of whatever brand you're looking for. The golf store is connected yet separate, and it carries a great selection of Callaway, Ting, and Taylor Made equipment, including woods, irons, and those nifty little white balls.
