Skate Shop Day Is Everyday!!
Over the past few years a collective of Skateboard Shops around the world have collectively gathered to create the Holiday "Skate Shop Day". As we approach February 17, 2024, skateboard enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the celebration of Skate Shop Day. This special day not only pays homage to the local skate shops that serve as the beating heart of the skateboarding culture but also provides a platform for riders, creators, and fans to come together and celebrate their shared passion. It's a day for celebration for those who have a local skate shop in their community. Skate Shops have been know to give a different outlet to kids that may have a different type of interest. All kids are not into organized structured sports. So Skate Shops are important to the community as it's an outlet for those to show their true interest. Showing up At the skate shop, chatting about experiences, meeting new friends, talking about past and future plans, is what Skate Shop Day is all about.
Supporting Small Businesses:
Not all towns have a local or small skate shops. Which is fine, it's not easy to run or organize small independent businesses these days. Many conglomerate cookie cutter web sites or corporate shops make thins hard for small grass roots community involved shops. That's why it's all the more important to support small, independently owned shops, that give back to the community, and not just take. If you're in an area where there is no small shop. Seek out small independently owned shops that have web sites and will ship to your local area. Supporting the shops in any way will help the culture and community. Our site here at Amateur Athlete Skate Shop is aa1982.com
