Sportchek is the next step up, decent prices and better selection. Be very wary of their skate sharpening, often times it's an improperly trained high school student doing a 1/2 assed job.
Local hockey shops probably priciest. Might be a bit more, but you'll get the best service, if you get skates baked I'd definitely only go to a true hockey store, and you'll get a decent sharpening job.
There's alot you can save money on, but decent skates I wouldn't cheap out on.
I always take my skates to the guy at the local rink who has been sharpening skates for the past 30 years haha. I think rinks have some of the better sharpening shops if you have one with that...
