"Sharpening figure skates doesn't require a degree in Rocket Science, it just requires the correct machine and a degree of care"

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