About Us

At Sportwheels we are friendly professionals helping families into recreational sports. We sell affordable sporting goods where every purchase you make, helps provide equipment and registration for local children in need. Our mission is for Atlantic Canada to have the highest participation rate of children in recreational sports. We are Giving Forward, Together. 

Started by the Mayhew family in 1947, in Prince Edward Island, the “Mayhew Cycle Shop” grew to Sackville in the late 1960’s. We started in a small building with Payzants Building Supplies and within a few years, we needed to move to a larger spot – which was a residential house located at 209 Sackville Dr, purchased by the Mayhew family to be renovated into Sportwheels.  Once completed, the store carried: bikes, roller skates, hockey skates, hockey sticks, performed bike repairs, and skate sharpening. We shared our Space with Monroe’s TV repair, until 1986 when we built our new building! Our new building had: Sportwheels, Monroes TV repair, and Sackville Small Engine. In 1990 we expanded the building to twice the size, we now occupy the entire building! Still owned by the Mayhew family, now into the 4th generation.

To give our customers the best possible pricing & selection, in 2008 Sportwheels joined forces with the SPORTS EXCELLENCE banner of stores across Canada.
