Both sporting goods stores, such as Dick's Sporting Goods, and big box retailers, such as Walmart, sell treadmills for online purchase or in-store pickup. Online-only retailers, such as Amazon, also offer treadmills for home delivery.
Dick's Sporting Goods is a fitness and athletics supply store that sells a variety of related equipment and apparel. They offer a wide selection of treadmills for sale on their website, along with detailed product information on each model. The site offers shoppers the option to order a treadmill directly from the website and have it shipped to a home, or have the treadmill reserved at the nearest store for in-person pickup. If a model is not currently available in the store, it can be ordered and sent there for pickup on a later date.
The treadmill section of Walmart's website organizes treadmills by a variety of criteria, such as best selling units, models with reduced prices, Walmart exclusive lines and units with a Rollback price reduction. Walmart website users also have the option to rate and review each model through both a star-based point system and with a written review.
Amazon's treadmills all feature detailed product descriptions and user reviews, along with a special forum where users can post questions about specific models.
