Changes

Welcome to our new website. The plan was to relaunch it at the begining of November but instead of making you wait till it is completely finished, I thought I'd let everyone see it as we are putting it together. Our hope, through this new site, is to bring you a shopping experience that is friendly, educational, and easy.

Over the past few years, Shop Task has changed and grown alot. Those who have been around since the beginning will remember buying skates off Leon from the back of his station wagon. Since then, we created an online shop solely focused on aggressive inline skating. We opened our first retail location in Vancouver and branched out into other types of skating. The next year we opened our second retail store in Toronto and now have four stores in major cities across Canada and a U.S. store in Seattle. We're very grateful for the things we've been able to do in such a short period of time and for the small group of dedicated individuals that have joined the us along the way and that have become part of the Shop Task family.

We've learned so much throughout the whole process of opening and operating traditional retail stores, meeting customers face to face, and helping each individual skater find a skate that suits their needs. It's now time to bring that knowledge and experience to our new online store.

Over the next few weeks we'll be slowing adding product to this new site. It won't be a complete reflection of what we have in stock, instead we'll be focusing on a hand picked collection of products that we think are the best. There will be products from all categories and skating types so you should still be able to find what you need. However, if you're trying to find something and you don't see it on the site please call us and ask if we have it. Our phone number is 1 (877) 497-7613.

Thank you for your patience through this transition period. I'll be making some more post here about the features and progress of the new site, so please check back soon.
