Just ordered some skates, has anyone had experience with them? Fast shipping and good service?

Never used them and can't tell you anything, but what's the point of asking after you order? If they were a sham place that's going to cheat you, they already have your money. Whereas if you had asked before, and somebody knew that, you wouldn't loose it.

I've ordered through them a few times. I've never had any problems. It takes about a week for the stuff to get to me, same with HockeyGiant or HockeyMonkey since they seem to always ship from California and I live in New York.

I've been to their physical store numerous times, so you should feel alright ordering from them.

Give them a call, any of us would just be guessing. They probably just processed your order by today, so it would depend entirely on the shipping option you chose. Call and ask for a tracking number.

Do you guys who order online do it because of your location? not alot of LHS?
Or is it the price diffrence?

I guess in just lucky to have SO MANY LHS around me. I love LHS, and have no problem spending a few extra bucks.

The Pro Shops around here are pretty limited. I'd have to drive like 45 minutes to get to a decent shop.
I shop online because theres more selection and cheaper prices.

It's pretty much on par with other online stores. They used to have some nice deals in store way back when. But they've since moved into a much smaller location.

I try to support my LHS as much as I can, but they simply don't have the amount of equipment available (especially as a goalie).

If you show up to the "best" LHS here looking for a left handed replacement blade or a pair of 13" gloves, you would be lucky if they had one or two for you to choose from.
