This was a fairly compact shop, but no sign of bauers or ccms - the skate line they carried, and which i have been noticing more and more is Graff (swiss). nice skates. You would wince at the price of a 'top-of-the-line' stick! cheapo littlekidz beginners are $35. Victoriaville is no more. No sign of Koho, Northland, etc. Sher-wood remains...
