Our Expert Staff



Norm Bouffard
Norm Bouffard Founder/Operator
 "Normy" founded Skater's Edge in 1987 and has built the store from the ground up.  Starting out with a modest skate sharpening operation, Norm has developed the store into the successful business that we know today.  Building his reputation on customer service and elite skate sharpening, he was quickly able to expand his business into hockey retail which in turn has morphed into other sports such as baseball, soccer, lacrosse and all the other sports in between.  
   An "old school" operator, Norm excels at building relationships with customers and although Skater's Edge has grown into an expansive operation, everyone who deals with Norm comes away with the feeling that he has treated them like the ultimate VIP.  Whether it's staying open late or coming in early for a customer, Norm's dedication to Skater's Edge and its customers knows no boundaries.
