Welcome back and thanks for joining us for the first Comacan questions interview of the year. Happy New Year! In the later part of last year, we were fortunate enough to have our boards enter another shop, we are eternally grateful for the support from all the customers and shops that show their support for us in any way. We are just as proud to show our support in return however we can in anyway to shops and customers just the same. Were always happy to find out why shops started, what makes them special and any other thoughts we can pick their brains about. For all of that and more please enjoy our first Comacan questions interview of the of the year, London Skateboard Co-op.

Why did you choose the name London Skateboard Co-op?
We chose London Skateboard Co-op because it’s a clear description of what we are. A cooperative Skateboard shop in London.

How long have you been in business?
We’ve been in business at the same location since 2012.

What was the motivation to start a skate shop?
The motivation to start a skate shop was based on a few things; the investment from the city in outdoor parks, and the closing of a local core shop.

What sets LSC apart?
What sets us apart is probably being a co-op, really, we don’t do much every skateboard shop shouldn’t be doing already.

What does skateboarding mean to you?
Skateboarding means having fun with your homies and skateboards.

What do Canadian skateboard brands mean to you?
Canadian skateboard brands mean the ability to support someone we know directly, that’s important to us.

What is your favorite part of owning a Skateshop?
Our favorite part of owning a skateboard shop is all the memories we know we’ve given the youth.
