We are the first to admit that the quality of our shoe rehabilitation service was not up to our past efforts.

We will bring a small array of equipment so they can feel what curling equipment is like. We won’t sell them anything but give them the tools to know what they should look for when they want to buy. See our CONTACT PAGE to get in touch with us to arrange a visit.
