To our friends, family, & supporters,
It goes without saying that we’re living through some surreal times and things are gonna get even weirder before it starts to feel normal again. As a society we have entered uncharted waters, and as a community based skateshop we are going to do whatever we can to support our local scene and the greater skateboarding ecosystem as a whole.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic crept in we were already deep in the planning stages of moving the shop and skate space across the river, but we have put Cambridge plans on hold for the time being. However, we still need to vacate our Allston location by the end of April, and are working on a temporary location in Brighton while we wait for the dust to settle.
Although the physical shop is currently closed until further notice, we’re ramping up our online efforts and are offering free shipping thoughout New England and will keep shipping daily for as long as we’re permitted. We’re also working on rebuilding the website to try and offer the same level of service digitally as we do in person. In the meantime we’re just a DM or Email Us away, so please reach out with any shop or product related questions, or just to say
whattup. Although it feels weird to be marketing during these times of uncertainty, we need to keep the wheels rolling and will continue to receive new product for the time being, and will be making regular social media posts with new product, team rider clips, shop updates, and community outreach efforts.
Pandemic aside, we have a lot of exciting things in the works for 2020, and we are looking forward to continue working hard to build, grow, and support the scene for many more years! Stay posted for more events, art shows, shop video projects, skate jams, Orchard product capsules & collaborations, exclusive product offerings, community building programs and more!
We are faithfully devoted to Boston Skateboarding scene, and are eternally grateful for all the support and love that we have received over the last 14 years. We’re looking forward for the opportunity to keep giving back to y’all for many years ahead!
Stay safe and healthy everyone.
-Armin & the Orchard Family
