Especially when we match whatever price you would find online
As a buyer this is the key point for me though. I bought my skates in store, but for almost everything else it's not reasonable for me to buy locally. We have two stores, a big one that doesn't price match and a smaller one at the rink tht does, but doesn't have a great selection. I usually cant find what im looking for inthe smaller store. If the bigger store would price match though, I'd buy everything there. But when you're talking $50ish more
shipping for a $100-$120 stick, why would I do that? I get what youre saying about $20-$30 on a $400 purcase, but when its $50ish on a $200 purchase, its unfair to expect that of me just because I'm local. it takes me about 15$ just in gas to get there and back. Though I'd never tell them I was there trying to get an idea to go buy online.
