Western Skate Supply has been servicing the roller, inline and ice skate industry since 1954. We have seen and experienced the many business transformations in the skating industry. These transformations include the growth of indoor roller and ice skating, the explosion of outdoor roller, inline and hockey skating and the maturing of an industry that continues to re-invent itself.

Because of our long history and "hands on" experiences in the skating industry, Western Skate Supply is able to help you make business decisions based on our 45 years of skating experience.

RETAIL STORES:

Whether you are opening your own skate shop or adding skates to your current retail space, Western Skate Supply is able to help you choose the roller, inline, ice skates and skating equipment best suited for your clientele. Along with one of the largest skate inventories of skate products in the United States, we offer full color catalogs, skate product posters, Point of Purchase items and seasonal promotions to help inform your customers and complete your sale.

ROLLER SKATING RINKS:

There are nearly 2,000 roller skating centers in the United States. Western Skate Supply, along with its sister company Express Skate Supply, are proud to service nearly 1,000 of these facilities.

If you are considering your first skating center, expanding a current facility or adding additional skating rinks to your company, here are a few "helpful hints".

You should skate a minimum of 1-1/2% - 2% of the population within a 7 mile radius of your rink each week.
The rink income should breakdown as follows:
Admission
45%
Skate Rental
20%
Snack Bar
14%
Pro Shop
10%
Games and Redemption
  6%
Miscellaneous
  5%
Develop strong working relationships with churches, schools and non-profit organizations.

For more details, we suggest you purchase a copy of "The Roller Skating Business Resource Manual". This 75 page manual was designed and written by some of the most successful skating rink operators in the United States. The resource manual will help with financing, site selection, building design, product choices, and business operation. The Roller Skating Business Resource Manual is available through Western Skate Supply for only $50.00.
