However, as someone who wouldn't do that, I am happy I don't have to pay to have someone fit me. Personally, I'd still be weary of ordering skates online(more power to you for those that do). I want to be fitted, and try on the exact pair that I am going to spend so much time in. Thats just me though.
I think stores that charge for fitting are probably just trying to survive and save their employees time by not spending valuable time for no sale. I assume it is due to previous experience with bargain hunting people.
