I wanted to order a Zuca bag with a pink frame for delivery by Christmas with 13 days left. Zuca's direct web store said they were flat out, there would be no more pink frames before January. I placed my order with Skate Buys instead on December 12. ...

A Very Good Buying Experience WIth SkateBuys

by , May 2, 2007 Rated a Very Helpful Review
It was a real leap of faith to order anything from SkateBuys after reading the (very) bad reviews here. BUT, my sweet daughter fell madly in love with one of their ice skating outfits and, despite my showing her many other outfits from other sites, she ...

Be careful buying "mish-mash" wheels

Bought some "mish-mash" wheels.  The pictures looked like standard in-line wheels but they were "mico-hub" wheels which don't take the standard wheel bearings.  They should separate these types of wheels so people don't get confused

I teach consumer studies. I know better. Yet, here I am searching online for a solution to my unfulfilled and indefinitely backordered purchase. I feel so gullible and embarrassed.  NO ONE answers the 1-866 number, there's no voicemail message

After many attempts to reach Skate Buys during its supposed hours of customer service and sales, all I got was the same recording over and over again. I also emailed, asking if the store was still in business and no response. The site wasn't working
