U don't need a coupon...just show up
3 pairs max.....

Honest opinion...avoid sportchek for a sharpen during this 2 weeks
Even the best techs do a rushed job these 2 weeks
Last year we did over 800 pairs of skates in first week we ran 2 techs from 7am to 10pm just on the skate machine...

Tip: showing up earlier in the morning will increase your chances of having them completed almost right away. don't expect them to be done in 10 minutes when it's busy!

better off paying $5-6 and go to Cyclone's where they actually know how to do it properly.
Unless you use the standard 5/8" dont bother with sport chek.

You have absolutely no idea the amount of skates that we get here that customers come to use specifically (even some that ask for me or another hockey guy specifically) to sharpen their skates, because Ice Level or Cyclone has messed up their skates numerous times before.

I admit, not all our sharpeners are perfect, but neither are theirs. So dont just bash our entire crew here cause of a few bad apples.

Couldn't agree more. I go to a specific guy at metro SC because I know how much pressure he uses when sharpening and knows it's always consistent
