As we write this, some of the states are starting to allow rinks to open back up (usually with restrictions), a few states are still closed, and all of this is certainly subject to change on an hourly basis. We want to try to keep you as up to date as possible on the inventory situations, so that rinks that are in a position to buy products can know where we stand. We took some time and tried to get updates from as many vendors as possible, and here is what we know. Remember that all of this is tentative, subject to change, as usual.
DEODORIZER – We have a good supply of shoe deodorizer in stock right now. A new shipment with a different scent (lavender) but the same basic properties is on the way. They’re also going to send us very soon a shipment of plastic cleaner that they recommend for plexiglass. Remember that the shoe deodorizer doesn’t say this on the can, but the manufacturer’s website shows that this is effective against corona. This is a much better solution than what some others are using.
CHICAGO – We received a shipment of their 400 (white) skates late last week. We’re expecting another big shipment, hopefully by August 10, that should get us most of their other products back in stock.
SURE-GRIP – Many of their quad outdoor items are sold out. They’re working on airing a batch of Boardwalk skates into the USA soon that should help a bit. Those will be a bit more expensive than normal, to cover the freight costs, but at least that will help with the customers that are in a rush. Here is a list of some of their skates that ARE IN STOCK NOW. Most of these are only one or two pair per size, so if you’re interested please act quickly:
Boardwalk Outdoor Red sz 10
Boardwalk Indoor Blue sz 4, 10
Boardwalk Pink Indoor sz 4, 5, 6
Boardwalk Pink Outdoor sz 10
Boardwalk Purple Outdoor sz 4, 5, 6
Stardust Gold sz 3, 4, 5
Stardust Blue sz 3, 4, 5
Stardust Pink sz 3, 5
Stardust Black sz 4, 5, 10, 11
Prism Purple sz 5, 6, 9, 10
Prism Pink sz 5, 9, 10
ROLLER DERBY – The pandemic has slowed down the release of their new items, so we don’t have them yet, but they do have several skates coming later this year that should be winners. As soon as we have more details on those (including ship dates) we will let you know. We do still have good supplies on most sizes of the GTX500 skates (their most popular model) and where we are out of a size we probably have it available in a different color scheme.
Many of their outdoor items are sold out right now, but here is a list of some sizes and colors that are CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. Like the Sure-Grip list, many of these are pretty limited quantities, so act quick.
