Small shops have a special niche to fill. Since I started a small shop this season have noticed a few come in to test product but 80 percent of them purchase from me instead of online. They like being able to stop in and ask questions about their gear. Or when the see me on the slopes they ask about what is new.

Nothing like stopping in a shop and learning something new hands on compared to just reading or watching a video on how to do it.

I do not have the inventory they do but think just standing there talking to someone weighs a lot more then emails or chatting.

I do make a point to talk to customers when I see them on the slopes, it makes a world of difference.

Not bashing them at all. If they where not your local shop would you shop there though. Also probably half there customers or more I would assume are not local. To me that is like calling a car dealership and ordering a car without going down there to look at it. Which is fine if you know what you want. But a bit hard if you are not sure on exactly what you want.

I have ordered from them myself because the lack of options in my area. Good store that has quantities I do not. Have even suggested them to customers who where looking for specific things that I do not carry.

Yeah support a fucking patio warehouse woo hoo. Frankly the best thing that could happen in the snowboard industry is for fucking companies to stop over producing and dumping their products on sites like that which undercut everyone.
