Buckman’s Ski & Snowboard Shop is family owned and operated by Jeff, Nancy and Brad Buckman. Jeff’s father, Leon Buckman, opened the first Buckman’s Ski Shop in 1971 in Perkiomenville, PA. Known for great customer service and quality products, Buckman’s quickly became one of the area's leading ski shops.
In 1988, the second Buckman’s Ski Shop opened in King of Prussia, PA. Over the next five years, the Buckman family opened 4 more shops throughout the Philadelphia suburbs. This past June, Buckman’s opened their 6th store in the Allentown, PA area. The state-of-the-art Buckman’s workshop also underwent major renovations this summer; it is the finest workshop on the east coast, covering 3200 sq. ft with over $550,000 worth of tuning equipment.
Overall, Buckman's has 40 years of experience in the action sports retail industry and carries the largest inventory of ski & snowboard merchandise and rental equipment in the state of PA. Buckmans.com, launched in 1998, is also the web’s largest ski and snowboard specific shop.
“We take great pride in doing whatever it takes to make sure the customer has a great experience when they come in any of our stores or shop at Buckmans.com. We train our employees to always be looking for ways to "wow" the customer and go above and beyond their expectations. We have a great staff that has been with us for a long time, many of them over 10 years! They know the products and also have built relationships with customers. As far as the brands, we have all the major players and are always looking for the new and greatest product that might have just come out. We are not afraid to bring an expensive or different product in to try it out.” – Brad Buckman, Senior Vice President & Marketing Director
