    Which is the largest walk-in hockey store in the US where buyers can see stuff, try it on and purchase on the spot?

    I'm not talking about mail order outlets or warehouse operations, where you obviously don't get to see, inspect or wear equipment in person before paying for it -- I'm talking about large storefront operations with a vast array of equipment in stock.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've been to Pro Hockey Life in Quebec and that was huge.

    Peranis in Flint is (possibly was, haven't been for a few years) humongous. That used to be the best day of my summer when we would go down and get new gear for the upcoming season.

    Never been there myself, but the hockey monkey superstore in NJ looks pretty unreal:

    In Canada, pro hockey life have some massive stores:



    And in Vancouver, where I currently live, "the hockey shop/source for sports" in Surrey has a pretty great selection. But Canadian prices for hockey gear are in general quite a bit more than US prices.

    Hockey Monkey is pretty massive, but the store depicted in that video fists anything we have around here, including the aforementioned Monkey store.

    Hockeygiant in Anaheim is fairly large. I'm taking a wild guess in saying it's certainly not the largest store, but it's pretty big. If you're in the area, it's worth a look.

    If I walked in there without seeing this first, I'd think that I had died and gone to heaven.

    I could spend an entire vacation in that store. I could spend a day just looking at sticks alone.
