We come from humble beginnings in Bethlehem Pennsylvania. June 28th 1982 is the birth date of AA skate shop. Over the many years in business we have many miles stones. Many of our day ones still stop in to this day. Everyone remembers the Demo days were we would host some crazy demos. Some of the companies that have done demos_ Powell Peralta, Blind, Baker, Es, Emerica, Vans, birdhouse, toy machine, black label and more. We are working on trying to gather some photos from the past. Cheers to 40 years. Here is to another 40! Your continued support we are thankful for.
40 years in the skate industry is not easy. There is ebs and flows. It’s not always up. Sometimes can be down. But our consistent drive is only that consistent.
In time, Amateur Athlete relocated once more - this time towards the front of Westgate Mall - as the need for larger premises became apparent once again. Throughout all these changes, however, one thing remained constant: the commitment of Amateur Athlete’s owners and staff to stay true to their core values and lifestyle ethos no matter what trends or styles were popular at any given moment.
This dedication has seen Amateur Athlete grow from strength to strength over the years despite any challenges they may face along the way; they remain determined that their customers should always have access to whatever gear they need with knowledge and service that can’t be beat!
Amateur Athlete skate shop Has added a new chapter to our story. After a long 36 year stint we have been forced out of our long time home at the Westgate Mall. Our new diggs are now Located at 2110 W Union Blvd Bethlehem 1.3 miles away from our Westgate spot. With a new and improved look and same great selection, we can't wait for our supporters to stop in and check out our New and improved location.
New Beginnings have started at our new Location. Still very close to our Westgate store. Our New 2110 W Union Blvd Bethlehem PA 18018 shop is up and running. With new life we updated the look of our shop, but kept the huge selection of goods. Same familiar faces but in a new, cleaner, bigger, better spot. We are firm believers that things happen for a reason. And we hope you stop by to check out our new spot.
