I live about 3 minutes from Pro-Fit. I have to say that although I've never heard any complaints about the work they do (or their selection), I've never felt 100% "welcome" there. Maybe I just have a knack for showing up at bad times, or maybe I'm just particularly unlikeable, but every time I'm there, I feel try really hard to get noticed or assisted (even if they're busy, it goes without any "we'll be right with you..." sort of attention to let me know that I'm even on their radar). More often than not, I've walked out after 5-10 minutes of waiting without being acknowledged.
I still go in there from time to time if I need something quick/easy (socks, etc), but if I need to be HELPED, I go to Ski Center (or Alpine Ski Shop in Sterling, but they aren't known for their boot work...)
That said, if you're headed to Leesburg from B'more, go out on 70 to 15 south. It's a LOT faster than trying to go via the Beltway...
