Death of the Independent Store

June 25, 2010

Please read this article. Couldn’t be more important. It talks about the sneaker boutique but applies to the action sports world as well.

I emailed Sneaker Freaker to thank them for writting it and here was the founders response:”thanks for your kind words… that article had to be written and I’m glad it has found an appreciative audience.Who knows what will happen? But if you aint bustin your balls, you aint trying hard enough!” – Woody (Editor & Founder)

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from Bodega in Boston – “We’re living in a world that is becoming one giant corporate logo… Support your local sneaker stores and skate shops because wherever you live, there’s a chain store waiting in the wings to fill the void.”
