The hockey store industry supplies hockey players with all sorts of hockey essentials like hockey sticks, hockey bags, hockey skates, hockey pucks, pads, apparel and accessories. Hockey stores provide a wide array of products to enhance play for any hockey enthusiast’s game. Some hockey stores provide hockey skate fittings to create custom skates. Hockey stores are similar to other sporting goods stores but since they specialize, they have many more hockey specific products to choose from. Stores are typically owned and run by managers and staff with extensive hockey knowledge. Many hockey stores operate within large sporting goods chains like Dick’s Sporting Goods and Big 5 but family owned and operated single location and multi-location hockey stores continue to thrive in communities all over the world.

Operating a hockey store requires a central location within a community. Some stores offer online purchasing and delivery as an additional convenience. Other hockey shops operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based bathroom stores often specialize in unique items that are difficult to access as demand is limited. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. Hockey shops are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, hockey pros, sales associates and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, shipping, invoicing and hockey store payments.
