COTTONWOOD – After being closed for nearly four years, Sidewalk Skater reopened July 1 at 401 N. Main St. (Gila Street).

Bret Hamilton and Helena Elder-Hamilton originally opened Sidewalk Skater in Cottonwood in Oct. 1996. They had to close the store in Oct. 2006.

Sidewalk Skater is a professional retail store featuring skateboards and accessories made primarily in North America. Besides skateboards, the store offers helmets, wrist guards and pads for knees and elbows. Also offered are clothes, parts and some paint ball fills.

“We can order roller skates,” said manager Marcus Pommerening.

Inside the store is a pool table and lounge area. Pommerening said kids are welcome to stay for a maximum of two hours.

The Hamilton family has been in the skateboard business since 1977. They opened the first shop in Arizona. The family’s main store is Sidewalk Surfer in Scottsdale.

Since there is little, if any, competition in the Verde Valley, the owners have a goal to expand in five or six years into Sedona. Their next goal will be in 10 years with a store in Flagstaff, depending on what competition develops in that timeframe.

Hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Call (928) 634-5880.

I've just recently moved into town, Landed a job @ Orion Bread Co., And plan on staying a while to raise a family. My fiance' is 8 mos. pregnant and id like to start coaching skateboarding. Might even try to put together a team. The park is a stones throw away from where I stay and I've already gotten to know one skater who is interested. Not in it for the $, Just the love of the sport. I'll be seein' Ya!
