Both my wife, Marianne, and I grew up going to roller skating rinks and we have these fond memories that we hope other people can experience
Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
These days, kids are focused on gadgets such as video games and cell phones. According to a 2007 study conducted by the non-profit organization, Trust for America's Health, statistics show that 25 million children are either obese or overweight. The fact of the matter is that kids are spending more time at home and not getting enough exercise. Bill and Marianne Stiles are independent business owners who have taken the task of reintroducing an American pastime: roller skating.
"Both my wife, Marianne, and I grew up going to roller skating rinks and we have these fond memories that we hope other people can experience," said Bill Stiles.
The couple launched http://www.WorldOfSkates.com in January 2008. The website specializes in roller skates of all types: inline skates, quad skates and hockey skates. The web store also has a selection of accessories like skate bags.
As the site marks its first year anniversary, Stiles has expanded their catalog to include skateboards and the aforementioned hockey skates.
"We have a love for skates," said Stiles.
In addition to an expansive catalog, World of Skates has a new blog that is coinciding with the site's one year anniversary.
"We're going to be covering topics such as inlines versus quads, product reviews on new skates, giving tips on helping kids buy their first skates and we'll also address some of the common questions about sizing and things of that nature," Stiles said of http://www.SkateKingdom.com.
While some kids clamor over the latest gadget, Bill and Marianne Stiles are giving the opportunity for them to actually enjoy life outside of the home. Perhaps through WorldOfSkates.com, kids may actually have a chance to get out there and lace up skates instead of winding up the wires of a video game controller.
