Wilmington, NC- 1888 Skate Club is pumped to announce the 1888 Battle of the Shops, grinding the rail at the Brooklyn Arts Center at St. Andrews (516 North 4th Street—the corner of Campbell and North 4th streets) on Sunday, May 22, 2011, from noon to 6 p.m.
Hunter Ford, owner of Momentum Skate Shop and vice president of 1888 Skate Club, says, “If you skate, or if you one day want to skate, you don’t want to miss the 1888 Battle of the Shops. It’s going to be sick.”
Ten shops from the tri-county area will compete for bragging rights in BAC’s spectacular indoor skate park. Some of the hottest bands in town will play throughout the day on BAC’s awesome stage, and there will be a killer sample sale—with skate brand reps on site—offering discounted samples of their upcoming lines—shoes, gear, clothing, accessories.
Tickets are available online at http://www.1888skateclub.com/ for $5, or the event is free with a club membership and you can join online.
