Here in Canada, you will always have some retailer selling hockey gear not far from where you are. That’s the way it is here, because a whole lot of us play hockey from an early age. Football is a big deal for our American friends and neighbors in much the same way, and both sports are ones where a lot of gear is required in comparison to basketball, baseball, or soccer. More and more people are shopping for sports gear online, and sometimes that is because it can be harder to find or more expensive in local retail stores. Not everyone is as crazy about hockey as us Canucks, and that’s fine. But everyone should have a Reship virtual mailbox.
What is not okay is finding the gear online you need for whatever sport it is you like and then becoming aware that the seller is unable to ship to your country. Minnesota is the hotbed for hockey in America, so we might assume that there's more hockey gear purchased in the North Star State than any other one in the country. Hockey is popular in the Northeast and when it comes to being puck crazy Minnesotans are a lot like Canadians. It is the Land of 10,000 lakes after all and nearly all of them are frozen over in the wintertime.
Now given that the USD is always stronger than the CAD and there are plenty of online sporting good retailers in Canada, surely a lot of hockey players in the USA will order hockey gear from Canada because of the discount they'd get on it. Pro Hockey Life is one of the online hockey stores any aspiring hockey sniper of any age might want to check out, and especially if you can't get a good selection of gear locally. SportChek is another online sport goods store that will have gear for all sorts of different sports.
So, whether you wear skates or shoes, carry a stick, or bounce a ball you can count on your Reship virtual mailbox to make certain that there's no online sporting goods store you can't shop at. Need to get past shipping restrictions for sports equipment in Canada? Reship makes that happen!
It was just over 10 years ago when the Canadian Dollar - aka 'Loonie' - was as close to parity with the US dollar - aka 'Greenback' - as it has ever been. That seems to be an anomaly as it has never been that close since. This means that there's not the same appeal for Canadians to shop at US online stores as it for Americans to shop for products in Canada available online. It's unlikely that you'll find someone from Minnesota or either of the Dakotas who can't skate, and it's equally unlikely that you'd find a Canadian online sporting goods retailer that won't ship to the US.
If you do, you will need to be about as concerned as the Montreal Canadiens would have been about NOT winning Stanley Cups during the 1970s. Meaning not concerned at all, as the NHL's most storied franchise won 6 of them during that decade and an impressive 4 in a row between 1976 and 1979 with what many consider to be the NHL's greatest dynasty. The Canadiens weren't concerned about most of their opponents either during those years, unless of course they were the vaunted Boston Bruins of that same era.
You don't need to be concerned if you see that your online sports gear retailer doesn't ship to where you live. Reship makes the impossible now possible when it comes to getting past international shipping restrictions. So not only can US sports players take advantage of their stronger dollar but with your Reship virtual mailbox there's no online hockey gear store you can't shop at. Same goes for an online basketball gear store or an online baseball gear store. You may even want to order a new tennis racquet from the UK or a new drum set so you can finally start making a racket in your basement!
The possibilities are endless, and with a Reship virtual mailing address you can always get whatever it is you buy online shipped - even if others can't because they don't have a Reship mailbox! Don't be that person.
These are the best ways to find deals online for the products you want, and for experiences too. Nowadays even older folks are expanding their horizons when it comes to shopping, and they are shopping online for sporting goods too. Pickleball anyone? This is one of the fastest growing sports for older people in North America so if hockey is too hard on your knees but you still want to swing something then maybe a pickleball racquet is what you need.
