Go to any pro shop that sells skates.
Try on different pairs for different brand. For each brand, write down which size fits you right, because their sizes are different(for instance, Mission skates' size match your regular shoe size(a Mission size 9 is a real size 9), while most skates will be smaller (a CCM size 8 may be a real size 9). So take notes as to which size fits best.
Then, go online, and order the skates. Match up the brand with the size that fits you best, and enjoy the savings. I did that with Mission skates and they feel great.
If you do that, don't go to the guy who you may need service from in the future. You may not like what you get. Spend the extra money to get your first skates from a reputable pro shop. Yes, you will pay more, but you'll also come out with skates that fit properly along with future support in the event you have problems.
