I’ve been a lifelong fan of the sport of hockey. From street hockey to dek, from Ice Hockey on the NES to ‘Chel 20’ on the Xbox One, High schoolers on the pond to turkey bowl games on the ice at PPG Paints Arena. I was late to adopt the sport having been a miserable skater as a kid. I only seriously stepped on the ice as an adult thanks to having a talented figure skating daughter. I was sitting in rinks at unbearably early hours daydreaming about finally attempting the sport I’d spent a lifetime adoring. For $5 / day I had 17,000 square feet all to myself to learn how to fall down, get back up, skate, and eventually play hockey.
Eight years later, I’m as addicted to playing hockey as the most zealous mite player. Another great passion of my life has been starting businesses with technology. During the great sequestration of 2020, I decided it was time to combine these two obsessions and create a business, savings tools, and hopefully, fun for hockey fanatics everywhere.
The first effort is Ferda Deals.com - what will be appearing here over the next few weeks is a price shopping tool to help the bargain conscious shoppers save time and money by shopping all of the great hockey retailers at one time. We have plenty of ideas on how to grow the offerings and benefits from this point forward, but we’re going to keep those to ourselves until they’re closer to becoming reality.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m looking forward to being of service to hockey players and shoppers soon!
