The Buchika's Story
In 1963, George ‘Butch’ Buchika gathered a selection of winter sporting equipment in his own garage in Haverhill, MA. His plan: sell skis to fund his son Roger’s ski-racing career. As his endeavor became increasingly successful, Roger joined the US Ski Team, more customers arrived, and Buchika’s Ski and Bike was born.
From these humble beginnings, Buchika’s has grown into a large-scale operation servicing families, enthusiasts, competition skiers, snowboarders, and cyclists. In 1974, an increase in sales pushed the enterprise to expand into a storefront in Salem, NH. Then, in 1985, Buchika’s moved to their current location on Route 28.
Dave Galeucia and Todd Atkinson took the reins of the company in 2007 and have run the store with the same level of passion and commitment that George Buchika displayed in 1963. Stocking top-quality brands like Specialized and Cannondale bicycles, and ski equipment from recognized manufacturers such as Volkl, Salomon and Atomic. True to our roots, Buchika’s continues to be run by sports enthusiasts that are proud to assist anyone who appreciates the thrill and excitement of the open trail or the open road.
