To them, the restring costs $2.60 for PSGD and the stringer is paid hourly anyway.
The customer is happy and brings his kid in to buy football pads instead of going to Dick's.
Generally, the company does not employ knowledgable (or properly train) stringers. Of course, there are exceptions to this.
I've seen a number of botched jobs out of SA/Dicks.
