    Sure, Hockey Giant is impressive when you walk to the back and there is an entire wall of legpads, but the people there are less than informed, generally indifferent to the thought of acutal customer service, and the next time Im FORCED to go there and spy employees smokin doobs across the street during their breaks I'm callin SloMo to lay some APD smackdown.

    The downside to GoalieMonkey is the wait. Their goalie warehouse is on site, so when you pick something it is brought over in the hands of a staffmember who had to open boxes and sort through brand new shipments. Dont know about you, but the wait is worth it to me to get something fresh out of the plastic instead of something thats dirty and been messed with off the rack.

    GoalieMonkey > the Giant.

    Nothin wrong with smokin doobs at the harp store

    how about the fact that they are so generally oblivious to their jobs that a special order that is there in two weeks doesnt actually REACH the customer for a month and a half because they cant (read: dont) read tracking numbers?

    how about the fact that unless youre one of their friends they rarely stop their internal conversations about "being soooo drunk the night before" to actually help when a customer has a question?

    add to that that half the time when you call and ask if something is in stock then drive x miles to get there and *magically* they're sold out and have NO idea when it's coming in?

    **** hockey giant and the tools that work there.

    Thanks. I was thinking about getting the black/red/white ones but I figured I'd be happier with these ones.

    Oh and I went down there again today and got some skates. Nothing fancy, just some entry level Nike/Bauer's that were on closeout. I think they are like XIV's or something.

    I went to Giant and the customer service was garbage for me also, I just drove a couple more miles down to Hockey Monkey/Hawk/animal and it was totally worth it( Although I was there for non-goalie gear ).

    Luckily I casually know a few of the main douchebags so... they're less douchy for me.

    Overall im a big fan of monkey. They just need to carry more gear in bohemoth sizes. So far gear in my size's don't leave me with much to choose from. If you're less then 6 foot, and have thin feet-- you're in business.

    The last guy that helped me out there was cool. His sidekick however was a sarcastic A-hole. The girl was very nice. Another guy was giving his best shot at attempting to be invisible.
