Lebanon is sadly lacking a Walmart. We don't have massive department stores for a one-stop solution to all our shopping needs. We do have malls, but the stores tend to be on the expensive side, and they don't always stock what you're looking for. So where exactly do you go to buy affordable sportswear?
A sports bra in Nike costs between $100 - $200. Adidas sells soccer balls for a devastating $50 a piece. And where would you even begin to look for archery gear?
These seven sportswear and accessory shops are your saviors. Say goodbye to wallet-crushing brand names, and hello to a one-stop destination for quality, yet affordable, sports gear.
