Anyway, to the OP, I think the consensus overall is to try to find a place where the staff is experienced, no matter where it is, how big it is or what it's called.
Yeah the "Pro Shop" in my rink is family owned (also own the rink) and we only have 4 guys (all over 20) working here all year round. We're all pretty damn good at sharpening skates (me being the best ) except for one guy who just doesn't give a hoot how the skates come out. A good sharpener CARES what his customers think about the job he does and also knows the difference between a half inch cut and a quarter inch cut. Take AIREYE's advice and just ask the sharpener a couple of questions and if he's knowledgable and seems genuine then you know you have a good one.
