What in specific are you looking for? There is a shop that is fairly new in Middletown, NY that has some gear. The owner is great and personable and I can check out what he has before you come to see if he can get what you want. Also, there are a bunch of little shops in PA by Blue Mountain (Allentown, PA area) as well as some more established ones like Pelican Snowboard shops and Buckmans. I am more than willing to help you out if you let me know what you are looking for!

Buckmans has shops all around Philadelphia.
Wicks has a shop in Exton about 30 min west of philadelphia and in concord, just 30 minutes southwest of philadelphia.
Stowe has a shop about 45 minutes northwest of philadelphia, just north of Pottstown.

Those are your best bet for PA based Philadelphia board shops. From what i can tell, Wicks in Exton is the best when it comes to knowledge. Buckmans is good too but alot of their employees don't know too much.

You can also say that "this shop" offers this much and every one of the three will match the competitors prices.

I just got your PM. The man above hit every location on the head in that area. Depending when you are coming down, there are some small shops in allentown PA near Blue Mountain. As for food, they are all good in Philly. Definately get a cheese steak from Geno's or Pat's. Sooooo goood.
