Message from the owner of Rink-Pro Sports

Lease Ending, Store Closing, January 25th, 2018

Greetings friends and both new and longtime loyal clients.

After long and careful thought, I am announcing that, as of January 25th, 2018, Rink-Pro Sports will be closing as a retail store.  We will still be maintaining a smaller home-based business focussing on team wear and custom apparel only, but no retail services.

After serving the sports community in and around West Ottawa since 2003, I have made the critical decision to not renew our commercial lease agreement for the retail store in Stittsville, nor will I be looking to relocate the business. 

My reasons are both personal and professional.  I realize this will disappoint some of you, but I hope you will understand that after 15 years for me, it is now time for a change ... and as they say, "change is good ..."

Thank you so much for your patronage over the years.  I have made many friends and learned so much from running our business here in Stittsville.  Among my greatest joys was having the opportunity to work side by side with my children, if only for a few years.  In many cases, and almost as gratifying, some of you and your children have worked here with me over the years, becoming my extended "work family".

I sincerely thank you all.
Who knows, we might see each other around the rinks ...
