D-Structure close their doors in Montreal
How come their business got worst in a growing market? So, if you feel like you want to chat about it, it's the place.
Maybe not keeping their promotion in line with the growing competition (I don't live in Canada so I don't know if they have been keeping their exposure up or not)
They certainly haven't been as visible as they were a few years ago though
always thought d-structure was pretty expensive and never really updated or expanded their inventory that much, at least in their online shop. RIP tho cool shop
It's a shame, a sick company. Not all stores are closing though are they?!
You can see how a store like Jibij really kept up with the changing nature of the industry, whereas in some ways D/S stayed fairly static. And yeah i agree on the prices - definitely seemed high.
Where does it say this?

I hope they aren't closing...D-structure is the most core ski shop in San Francisco
RIP HIGH NORTH YOU CHANGED MY LIFE.

Just heard the news, SHIT, this surely killed my day.
THANKS TO D-S over the years for bringing sick comps and life in Montréal!

never been to an actual store, but the online shop was pretty bad. they never updated stuff, and the prices were higher than any other "core" shop. it seemed like they were a cool part of the montreal scene though, so that is a shame that they have to close.
i live walking distance from d-structure in montreal and i never spent a dime there for one reason: their prices were rediculous. I saved hundreds off of what D was asking by ordering all my gear from evo in seattle. sorry to say it but d-structure is where I went to check out product before i found it for a fair price somewhere else. I got my skis mounted at Sports Experts, which is farther from where i live, because D wanted $35 for the work. 35 to mount a ski? give me a break.

Website was never updated, prices were high, and I have been to the actual store and it was nothing special, felt like any other shop

wow i didnt even know . you just ruined my day . it was such a sick shop. yeah the prices were pretty high. i would have never bought skis full price there . but it was an institution in blading and skiing in quebec. anyone that has gone to the d-jam or any other d-s sponsered event knows what i am talking about . they were the sickest jams ive ever been to
must have been tought to survive with the growth of the other shops around montreal like AXIS and Magik4
