Local pro shops will SLIGHTLY more expensive then internet stores. But the advantage is that the pro shop will take care of you and your skates. And besides the slightly more expensive price tag is basically a wash when you take into account the cost of shipping.
Double true. I'm not saying people should expect this, but ask the store manager if he can offer a small discount after you've been fitted. They really can't math HockeyWalmart.com, but maybe they can meet you halfway.
