As I get deeper and deeper in knowledge and future debt, I've gathered a bit more info on "when" shops have sales. Here's what I've got so far:
Of course this is in Vancouver BC where I'm from and it's also just what the sales person told me so I'll have to take all of this with a grain of salt.
is when they have a big sale. They said they replenish stock then. hmmm.
North Shore Ski and Board
, but they said that they usually don't have any stock left by that time. Judging by their pricing, that shouldn't be true unless they slash like crazy later cause their prices off the bat are pretty high. Service is the best I've seen so far.
(Hastings) - October
This is when they claim to have the best deals because they want to get rid of stock as per usual. Service is good so far, but the person I talked to in the snowboard dept. didn't seem to understand the technology side and the retail trend side of this industry.
The other big event I found is the ski and snowboard swap at BC place. I have little info on that so if anyone can tell me what those are like let me know.
This is all I have so far. Any suggestions? When do you think is the best time to buy?
Thanks ahead to all who read and post. This forum has really made snowboarding info accessible to noobs like me.
