For 34 years, Lynda's Skating Apparel in London has been the go-to place for many in the skating community, including Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.

But soon skaters will have to find a new place to shop because the store is closing for good on May 30.

"She was the first person to get me skates," says figure skater Payton Beckett, 12.

Three-year old Kayla got her first pair on Wednesday.

Her mom, Andrea, was a customer of Lynda's when she was little.

"Me and my two sisters came here when Lynda was set up in her basement," says Andrea Zelinka, Kayla's mom.

Lynda's basement is where it all started.

"I loved figure skating, so it was a way to stay in a sport that i loved," says owner Lynda Alguire.

Among Lynda's many customers are Olympic Ice Dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.

Lynda fitted Tessa and Scott with the skates they wore during both the 2010 and 2014 Olympic Winter Games."

"She came in to pick out a dress. She liked a red one, but her grandma picked out another one and she turned to her mom and said, 'That dress better be under the tree at Christmas," says Alguire.

But now many skaters are saddened by the loss of the business.

"It's a huge loss for London," says Brenda Held.

"It's going to be hard to replace her," adds Brooke Marshall.

"I'm going to miss it," says Alguire.
