720 Boardshop expands to South Glenn
28 Aug, 2009
It hasn’t been easy for snowboard shops during the last couple years and it’s been more common to see shops closing than a shop expanding. 720 Boardshop out of Denver, Colorado is expanding to their second location located in the new South Glenn shopping area that opens this weekend. I stopped by the shop yesterday to check in with friends and see the progress of their new store.
Installing the 720 sign outside
Despite the opening this weekend, 720 Boardshop was doing better than it’s neighbors on being open early and looking good when I strolled through. Boxes were still being brought in and day 1 included some sales as the 720 crew worked to finish the shop up.
A mix of softoods on hand already and the hardgoods getting put out
Behind the counter the goodies to purchase
Throughout the store is amazing graffiti work by a local artist Dread and pal Wspr that covers the style of the snow: snow, skate, wake, surf.
The boys K-mart and local coach Berto talking about the Copper days
Stenciling of the 720 sign around the floors, this time right in front of the Neff Boardshorts
Justin from comclovin lives nearby so he stopped in to check things out. He is the man to talk to when it comes to riding wider/bigger boards in snowboarding.
Kenny (K-mart) was in town and stopped by. He was my Windell’s host but we found out at camp we know a lot of the same people.
Soon it’ll cross into winter but right now it’s skate time for the 720 boardshop with the skate decks lining the walls. I watched as multiple groms made their way into the store yesterday, stoked to have a new skate shop near them.
Never Summer longboards stacked up
The shop has the Grand Opening this weekend and definitely worth to stop by if you are in Denver, they’ll be games of Skate friday to sunday at 4pm, product tosses/giveaways, and a DJ tonight at the store.
