The Hockey Shop Experience
Some Things Are Better Offline
We live in an age where it's easy to find answers to many of our questions online. But rarely will you find everyone in agreement on the answer to these questions. Many times, the frustrating truth is that it's a matter of personal preference, and it depends on the unique needs and physical traits of the individual. In fact, it's easy to come away from online research feeling more overwhelmed than when you started. This is when you need to pick the brain of an expert with years of experience. This is what we are proud to offer you here at Johnston's.
Your Trusted Advisors
Without trusted advisors, new skaters can easily pickup bad habits which are not only difficult to unlearn but can also put you behind the curve when compared to your teammates. We live in a competitive world and we can give you the edge you need to keep up with your teammates and leave your opponents wondering what happened. If you want to stand out from the crowd, one of the most important decisions you can make is who you decide to allow to be your long-term, trusted advisor.
Growing Hockey in Bloomington
Our Role in Creating a Hockey Town
As the only hockey & figure skating specialty store in town when the US Cellular Coliseum opened it's doors in Bloomington in 2006, we found ourselves with an important role to play: to educate and prepare new skaters and parents for the challenges associated with competitive sports. We took it upon ourselves to help shape young skaters into competitors, through shared knowledge, expert service and helping to find the right equipment for their unique needs. We embraced that role and still do today. Hockey continues to grow rapidly in Bloomington, and we're proud to be a part of that.
Do we support local hockey? You bet we do!
