Figure Skating

"Welcome to the largest refuge for figure skaters in the U.S. Period!"
-Ted Petroskey, Skate Department Manager

Here are the top 6 reasons why you should purchase your next set of skates from Pierce:

Since 1936

In 1936 Walter Pierce founded Pierce's Trading Post & Skate Exchange at 9th & Marquette in Minneapolis. Since that time, we have been "Where the Skaters Go!"  Today, three generations later, Pierce Skate & Ski is still family owned and operated.

One of the cornerstones of our skate department is our trade-in program aimed specifically at kids and their constantly growing feet.
