      How long do I have to wait for my skates to get sharpened?

      A sharpening can take 10-15 minutes depending on the requested sharpen and the type of skate. Please note that during peak seasons, wait times can vary depending on how busy the department is. We will inform you of the estimated wait time when you drop off your skates.

      24/7 Skate Sharpening Drop Off Box

      Located at the front of our store for your convenience. Just drop your skates off in the bin, and they will be sharpened and ready to be picked up within the first 15 minutes of our store opening hours.

      How often should I sharpen my skates?

      This depends on personal preference. A good rule of thumb is one sharpen for every 10 hours of ice time. This will allow you to gauge whether your edges are going dull in that time or whether you could go longer in between sharpens. The type of ice and environment also determines how often you sharpen your skates. For example, outdoor rinks tend to be colder and harder, which can wear down your blades a lot faster, than skating on an indoor rink.
