  1. Sorry it's been a busy week and I haven't had a chance to respond to everyone's posts but I wanted to take the time to say thanks for your input. I really appreciate it. I've definitely started putting it to good use. I've reached out to the local youth hockey organizations and the 2 ACHA college teams that call the rink home as well as the local figure skating club and had some great conversations. I set up an account with Howie's and working on something for the figure skating supplies as well. I was able to get my hands on the skate sharpener, a riveter, work bench and tools. Making progress but still so much to do..
  2. Ya I believe i can give great service which will drive repeat customers but your right about the over stocking and its one of my bigger concerns. I hate to go bare bones on equipment but I am leaning more on just stocking tape, laces wax etc until I get things rolling..
  3. Totally agree and service is definitely going to be my main focus.
  4. So I haven't worked in a retail hockey shop in a really long time but I have an opportunity to open a shop in a twin pad ice rink where the closest competition is 30 miles away. I'm working on securing a sharpener, work bench, riveter and tools. I also have to figure out what to carry for equipment as the retail floor space is limited and of course finding a distributor. Any useful advice or information would be appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Are you able do any dry land training? I have been doing side lunges and slide board to try and get my leg strength back after hip and leg injury. Started with out weight resistance and have been working my way up gradually. Strengthening the support muscles helps your balance which in turn helps your skating.

  8. I noticed that Bauer 95 flex and Easton 95 flex cut to the same length are night and day different. I use mostly pro stock/custom order. The Bauer One95 95flex is almost perfect for me 6'4 280lbs where as surprisingly the Easton 95 flex in both RS and S19 were a bit too stiff. I can use it but I don't have the pin point control I normally would with shot placement. So this could also be because of the kick point differences? I'm tempted to try an 85 flex RS just to see. Anyone got any input on Warrior's?
