    Da sports shop bisher in LEO fehlt related discussion: Sportgeschäft würde ich einen zusätzlichen Eintrag unterstützen (sofern Viktor o.a. noch Belege nachliefern), aber es wäre falsch, "sports outfitters" aus dem Wörterbuch zu entfernen: Das Wort meint sehr wohl "Ladenlokale" alias Sportgeschäfte! Korrektur nicht unterstützt.

    @Viktor: Wie würdest Du "sports outfitters" in obigen Beispielen übersetzen?
