Help!

We'll be there in May and would like to buy football or baseball tops for our young grandsons. Can anyone advise the best place in the area to get them? Thanks.

You'll need to pick them up when you are off the island; I doubt that anyplace sells them ... though you might try the Publix and the CVS drugstore about mid-Key on Longboat. I've seen some occasionally at Davidson's Drugs (on the mainland at Bahia Vista and US 41). Also if you pass by a large WalMart you could find some.

Cbchrc, thanks for the info.

I didn't really expect to get them on the island so was really thinking of the mainland.Walmart sounds likely I should think. I haven't noticed them in the past but haven't been looking!

Next time I'm in a WalMart I'll check it out, and will also watch out for any sports-oriented places I may pass. Another possibility might be a shop in one of the Malls.

Are you looking for NFL jerseys/ pro baseball type shirts?

There are some sports oriented stores in the Malls that sell T-Shirts with football (US football) and baseball team logos (Sports Fan-Attic at the Sarasota Square Mall)..Champs Sports,Sports Authority, Dick's Sporting Goods etc. Maybe Target..

Are you looking for specific sports teams? There is a store called Bealls that carries Florida teams.

You can also buy them online.

Thanks so much for your replies. You've given me lots of options. We aren't looking for any team specifically but maybe one of the Florida ones would be good.

The place on St. Armands is called Alvin's Island. But I don't think I've ever seen any sports-related T's in there. Great beachwear, though.

if you want Florida teams, and not others, then Walmart and Bealls will have them- and at decent prices. If you wanted specific teams then the malls on the mainland would give you a few stores that specialize.

Bealls have a discount every Tuesday if you are 50 or over.
