While shopping for boots, I discovered that Mahoneys in Johnson City is passing off 2nds as 1st at their shoe store, buyers beware, don't pay top quality prices for something that is second quailty.

Simply not true!! The individual suspected of this post bought a pair of boots, WORE them for two weeks, scuffed them up, then brought them back saying they didn't fit. No, I don't work there. GREAT place for quality stuff.

Mahones has great products and service. If there was any issue about their products they would have taken care of it. I have been a customer for over 20 years. LOVE the place!

Is Dicks giving Dan a run 4-the-money? Check out ads in 2-days JC Press.

Hopefully they (Dick's) runs Mahoney's out of town. Their service is pathetic and they cater to "frequent shoppers" in their hunting/firearms department. Not to mention that their firearms are overpriced by about 20% above what others sell them for.

I'm all for supporting the home town businesses, but Mahoney's has turned arrogant over the years and think that they can just get by with running over their customers.

It seems that Dan really likes his merchandise, 98% of items are ’’way overpriced’’ and yes the staff does have an attitude of supremacy. Well excuse me…while I drive over to Dicks at the Mall & deal with real people

After leaving mahoneys because there customer service was terrible i drove to dicks and found much of the same while there another fellow told me to make the short drive to bristol if I was interested in a firearm and see the guys at Volunteer gun so I did so. I found the prices there very reasonable and the customer service was excellent if you need a Firearm it is the place to shop

Dick's is like a virus spreading across the land. Support your local stores or we'll continue our spiral into franchise hell. You can't get the personal advice on equipment at Dick's that you can get at Mahoneys. The folks at Mahoney's really know their stuff. The kids at Dick's will be working at McDonald's next week.

Mahoney's is great! I've lived in Johnson City all my life and love shopping there. Also, I personally know Dan and know that he's a really nice guy. Please support local stores! I completely agree with Russell.

I'll second the call to avoid Mahoneys for everything but their hiking/camping and fly fishing departments. The personnel in those departments seem to enjoy their job and will go out of their way to help you if you need some advice or help locating something.

As for the rest of the store, I would stay far away. The employees are arrogant and really seem to want to be anywhere other than at that store. They try to avoid helping people at all costs. The firearms department is the worst, the guys there only help people that they already know and if you ask to seek something, they steer you away from it and try to up-sell to their favorite brand. I don't mind a little input, but if I ask to see a Glock or a H&K, I don't want to hear about how awesome your 1911 and how you wouldn't buy a Glock while you do everything in your power to keep from opening that case. Plus, they are steeply overpriced - by a large margin.

I am unfortunately having to get a divorce,my husband has been abusive for 20 years too long to me and I need to get away from this. He is self-employed. Anybody know of a good attorney to go with that can fight for me as I know he will be manipulative, underhanded, sneaky, and unable to come to an agreement easily.

i really like the store. what i do not like is there return policy. Here it is Christmas and i bought a few items. The return policy is 30 days only with a receipt. They do not offer a gift receipt and this makes it tough when giving gifts. The particular purchase that i made will have to be returned by Jan 4th to be within the return guidelines. This is not right and forces me to shop elsewhere.

If there's any store in this area that needs to go out of business its Mahoneys. He's an overpriced crook who has forgotten that the customer comes first. The prices are inflated (just look at their fly fishing or firearms) and they customer service is abysmal. If he spent more time trying to hire people that were competent instead of stocking it with loudmouth good ol' boys like he is now, he might have a decent store.

I'll drive somewhere else to do my business, even take a trip down to Bass Pro if needed. Anything to keep my money away from Mahoney.

I was looking for a gunsafe and their knowledge was excelent. The employees were very knowledgeable and friendly and helped me find one that was perfect for what I needed. Dick's couldn't even get one of their floor models to work much less know anything about it.
