About Us


We started as a small sporting goods store in 1984 out of Clinton Township, Michigan. Since then, we have evolved into the largest independent retailer of hockey equipment and gear in the United States.

We currently provide our customers with the best selection, service, and competitive prices across 10 retail locations and an online store.

We pride ourselves in our knowledge of both our products and the game today. Our top priority is to see that every customer is satisfied with their experience in any of our stores. We strive to provide the proper fit and education during your visit while being treated with the utmost respect from our employees.

In addition to equipment and gear, we offer an array of services that no other retailer can match, including:

  • Precision Skate Sharpening and Profiling
  • Expert Skate Repair
  • TRUE Custom Skate Fitting
  • Team Services
    • Custom Team Jerseys
    • Custom Team Apparel
    • Custom Team Equipment
    • Custom Team Gear Websites
  • Graphic Services
    • Logo Design
    • Individual Apparel
    • Corporate Apparel

All of our services are prepared and completed meticulously by B&R Sports. With in-house screen printing and embroidery, we can ensure proper care and delivery for every order. 

Our company is not ran by a board room of executives. We have been family owned and operated for over 30 years. Our employees are family to us, as well. We all work together to provide for the hockey communities that we serve and we hope to continue to do so for years to come!
