Underground Skate Shop flagship store grand opening is Saturday, June 18th at noon

Underground Skate Shop will celebrate the grand opening of its new flagship store this Saturday, June 18th at noon. The 1,500-square-foot shop is located at 145 Halsey Street downtown Newark.

The shop was founded in 2010 in Ridgewood and then expanded to a location in Nutley, and has been a driving force behind the New Jersey skate scene. With more than 200 decks (that’s the wooden part of a skateboard) on hand at all times as well as footwear and apparel, it should be a welcome addition to the burgeoning downtown district and Halsey corridor.

Be sure to stop by Saturday and say hello to owners Mark and Clint, who reported on the shop’s Facebook page recently that their official first customer beat everyone to the punch by showing up a couple days early.
