Conclusion and suggestion

Unfortunately, Academy Sports receives overall low grades. “Stock” is one of many extremely low rated topics. Apparently Academy Sports’ boots are pointed out, suggesting they are often out of stock. We suggest they look over their supply of boots. Also, customers talk less these days about the navigation on the site. The fact that “anymore” is a correlating topic suggests navigating has been better before, but after some changes have become a negative factor. Perhaps a good idea could be to go back to previous versions of the site and explore what customers liked about it. Make sure to change the right things on the site!
