I'm pleased to announce our new mission - The BEST Prices!

I'm going to be blunt; the hockey industry is a mess. It's a stupid way to make a living.

I've always striven to have good prices at Rocket Skate. 

When we opened our retail shop in the YMCA, our inventory consisted primarily of closeout items which we could sell at an excellent price while still making a fair profit. Since then manufacturers have slashed their dealer discounts to the bone and closeout inventory has dried up for the most part. Somewhere between our YMCA opening date seven years ago and 2014 we lost a little focus on our pricing.

Most of our prices were good, but in the ever changing landscape of hockey some of them . . . well they sucked.

Toward the end of 2014, I went through all of the inventory in the store, one item at a time and checked our prices against our internet competitors. For some brands all of our inventory was already at or below internet pricing. The rest of it, I fixed.

I'm pleased to announce that by the start of 2015, all of our hockey protective equipment, sticks and bags were being offered at the best prices you will find anywhere. 

Come in, bring your phone and compare our prices. If you find a better deal, we'll match it and toss in two free sharpenings.
