    I liked the OLD one they had near the entrance. I bought quite a bit of gear there.

    Not sure what will be put in its place, maybe something for Jamie Storr's goalie clinic? (Just a wild guess, I have no idea...)

    They will still have sharpenings and tape/laces for sale at the rink, but not much more. A new place might pop up close to TSC, but it would be more of a sharpening, customization and repair shop versus a place with a bunch of equipment for sale off the rack.

    I really liked the shop at TSC. Maybe this will be the kick in the ass I need to get my own sharpener...
    they want them out so someone else can pay higher rent.

    and I believe you are correct with #2

    I was thinking the other day what are people going to do during tournaments when they need sticks or to replace lost/broken gear?

    And what am I going to do when my ADD kicks in and I need to escape for a few minutes, still be able to watch the game and not just stand in the hallways?

    I hope they don't shut that snack bar down. I love having cheese sticks and beer during camp.

    For big tournaments, Golden Bear or Play It Again can set up temporary tables indoors (or a tent in the parking lot). Heck, Hockey Monkey or (ugh!) Hockey Giant can do it, too, if they want to make the drive.

    In fact, if this trend continues (mom-n-pop pro shops no longer economically viable ensconced in every rink) then maybe it makes sense for HM & HG to have their own branded trucks to haul gear around to SoCal rinks having big tourneys. Kind of like the Kings fan development "chariot".

    It is sad when these skate shops close. I used to go to Lee's Skate shop in Westminister, that place was great. It is understandable that the shop at TSC is closing. For the most part people are buying their gear at HM or HG or other megastores. So long as they have skate sharpening, white/black/clear tape, laces, and maybe a few dozen sticks available for sale in the office or down at the skate rental area it wont bother me too much. I'm just galad the rink isnt closing. They probably have a spike in sales of T shirts and jersies during camp. They could probably set up some tables in the concession concourse upstairs to sell that kind of stuff when the opportunity arises. BBO's idea of a truck coming out to sell gear during tourneys would probably be good if you could get HM or HG on board.

    They used to be good back in the day when they had the huge space. Decent prices and instant gratification. Place looked nice.
