"I just wanted to let you know, that after you (Sharyn) came to our RBA (Roxbury baseball Association) board meeting I joined your buyers club.  I purchased new catchers equipment for my son this weekend.  Your staff was great and it was a lot easier than buying online. For one thing my son could try it on before I bought it."

"Skate sharpening to a figure skater is probably the most important thing to be concerned with. I have gone to many places to get my skates sharpened, and I am about as picky as they come. Many of my skating friends know my relationship with Middlebury Sports. Friends with the owner or not, when the owner suggested that I give them a try, I was a little concerned because you don't see too many figure skaters there. I am here to say to you all, "what is the matter with you"? They are like the Gods of Sharpening. I have never received my skates back with a problem. The blades are always clean and sharp, which helps when getting the edges you need. If they don't have something you need, they will order it. While there is a line between hockey and figure skating, none of the guys will ever make you, the figure skater, feel like you are not important. They know their stuff. Give them try. You will be glad you did."

"Middlebury is more than a Pro Shop. They have great prices on hockey equipment, but they go beyond that. They take the time to make sure you get the right gear and that it fits correctly. The are friendly and always available to help in a pinch. The Middlebury staff is always professional and their skate sharpening is second to none. We buy all of hockey equipment from Middlebury. They're the ones I trust."
-Fred Moser

"Middlebury Sports has a wide variety of supplies and amenities that the hockey player needs to be at his best. They have a courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful staff. Their prices are reasonable to anyone in the area and being so close to our home and Aspen is an even bigger advantage. We have never been disappointed and would recommend others trying them out and seeing for yourself! Thanks Chris Sannipolifor always being so helpful to us."
-The Faraci Family

"As both a hockey and figure skating mom, I find the membership to be well worth the price I paid for it. I am constantly buying tights and hockey socks, and I made up the membership fee in savings within just a few purchases. I also use Middlebury Sports for figure skating sharpenings. I was a bit skeptical as first, as I didn't think that a bunch of 'hockey guys' would know how to handle figure skates, but I was pleasantly surprised by the service I received. Dan Bourke correctly identified my daughter's blades' radius of hollow by sight, and she is very happy with the sharpening he did for her. I, too, had my figure skates sharpened there, and will definitely go back to Middlebury in the future."

"Skate Sharpening: Most parents and players do not realize that the most important piece of equipment for a hockey player is not the hockey skate, but the sharpening of the blades of the skates. Between my skates and my son's skates, I cannot even think over the years how many different locations and individuals have sharpened our skates. I can honestly tell you I have not had as consistent and high level of accuracy of sharpening - but the most impressive aspect - each employee of Middlebury does a great job. It is almost like they need to pass a test before they are allowed to operate the skate sharpening machine. Hats off to the staff!

Equipment Knowledge: When I walk in with my son looking for hockey equipment, we tell the staff what piece of equipment we are looking for and directly taken to the section where the equipment is displayed and we review options - generally at 3-different price points and compared between manufacturers - which allows me to make a very informed decision based on my budget and level of quality between manufactures. They also ask what position he plays - since some style equipment is better suited for forwards versus defensemen.

Club Pricing: This is simple - low internet pricing with the exception of walking out of the store with the product right then and there - without the wait of it arriving in the mail or via UPS. You just cannot beat that business model!

Customer Care: I generally always use the Randolph location - and I cannot remember a time when I have not been greeted with a smile and a hello! I enjoy the small talk of pro hockey down to high school hockey. Always a fun time when I go there."

"Just wanted to thank you and everyone at Middlebury for your consistently excellent service every time I come in there,  not only with myself, but also any other customers there at the time. Your prices are always the best around and have a great selection of quality equipment in stock. When I had a problem with my skates you guys went out of your way to get the problem resolved as soon as possible in order for me to have them for my next game and I seriously appreciate that. Keep up the amazing service and I look forward to seeing you guys soon. Thanks again."

"My wife Dana and I can not begin to tell you how pleased we have been doing business with Middlebury Sports. Being a hockey family with three boys and a former figure skater you can imagine how often we need Middlebury's help. We are always met by a friendly and knowledgeable staff and a great selection of products. I would recommend Middlebury to any family with skating needs. I would like to thank Brian Kelly personally for setting the bar for all the employees."

"I started doing business at Middlebury Sports and Apparel 3 years ago when our hockey club needed new jerseys. Owner Sharon Stevens took the time to make sure we got exactly what we wanted and when finished the jerseys looked fantastic! I had such a great experience that I personally decided to join their buyers club. I am so glad I did. They have a great selection of hockey and lacrosse gear and I have found their prices to be comparable to the best online websites. Except at Middlebury you get to see the product, try it on and know that you are making the right choice. The only thing better then their selection and pricing is their staff. They are friendly and very knowledgeable. In addition to all that, as the parent of a travel hockey goalie, I have saved much more then the cost of the membership in getting my sons skates sharpened. They charge about half of what most of the local rink pro shops charge and they are sharpened right every time! It is such a pleasure to do business at Middlebury Sports and Apparel.
There is no reason to go anywhere else!"
