Just in time for the Olympic Hockey Tournaments: a great new sports shop has opened up only one block from Canada Hockey Place. From the Okanagan's Rockey Mountain Sports Marketing, the shop is a combination of hockey jerseys (International and NHL), hockey souvenirs, hockey art and memorabilia, and event ticket sales.
And, as of Thursday Feb. 11th, the book, Hockey and High Heels will be available in the shop!
Located in International Village, the shop is a grand, open space with a gallery-like feel and your best choice for acquiring your last minute hockey jersey and other game time accessories including hats and flags. Plus they will also be a source for 2010 Winter Olympic sporting event tickets.
