PostSubject: New Fingerboard Shop   Mon Jun 08, 2009 12:41 am

My parents and I are thinking of making a fingerboard shop/park thing. I need help choosing an area for it, generally around the saint louis area. Do you know what area in which people fingerboard most and might go here. I am also going to try to get some company's to sponsor it such as blackriver or fastfingers. We will have a shop including Fingerboardparks and maybe a skateboard halfpipe in the back. Please help me and suggest ideas. Thank you.

Dude so boring in the UK the nearest thing to a fb shop is tesco's (a supermarket) which only sells like 2 tech decks. If you do open a shop goodluck.

hmm i am liking the idea but $5 per entry is abit expensive. lower it to 2 bucks. u will still earn $$ . its more affordable too. u may want to make some kind of umm membership thing so regulars can pay lesser like buy a monthly or even yearly admission card. i wish u good luck. i envy u. ur parents support fb so much! then u can also sell techdecks, and all sorts of decks , wheels tuning and stuff so u are running a distribution company as well.

SO this is what is going down,

I will have a rendezvous type thing in the general area that i will have my shop. I am going to see how many people will come to the event in order to see if people will come to my shop.
If enough people come to this event, then the shop will be made.
I will have sponsors, maybe brr, ftaface, ffrco, nocomply ect...
Hope this all goes as planned.

Ok first you gotta ask your self, How much will everything to come out to be?
because if its over 1,000$ i will just suggest you get the G6 BRR park.

Second, Make sure you find a good location where everything is safe.
don't just pick a random spot without knowing whats around it, or the people that live around there.

Third, Dont let random people come in your shop without knowing them. Some people might come to the shop to find a way to break in.

Fourth, ask your self if the place is big enough for the park to fit and people to be able to walk around. Also make sure you get a HUGE AC. Most people hate the smell of hot/sweaty people.

Fifth, Make sure you install cameras around the shop, just to be secured. I will also recommend you get a TV on a wall for some people to enjoy watching videos. Or just hook up your PS3/xbox360 and put SKATE2 in that zhit!

My last tip will be, to keep everything organized and under control. If something bad happens your ass might get sued. Also keep an adult in the building when others you don't know are shopping.

Ohh and one more last thing! make sure you have a credit card machine that supports VISA/MASTER CARDS. and always have a PC or laptop to sign in members. or calculate stuff for you.

Hope i helped, and I wish you luck!
If your shop gets somewhere, i will make sure to visit it!

Kind Regards,

Xaxier Ruiz
