They would give you the reduction via price protection I am sure, but in your case maybe it won't be made up in travelling costs?
Probably not. I bought them before an appointment in Burlington since they didn't have my size in Bolton. On the bright side, they sharpened them for free, which CT *doesn't* do in Bolton. Kinda funny - I was wondering why they weren't on sale when so many other skates were!
The Palgrave pond is awesome! We used to go there quite often with Amik.
