Hot Spot Skateshop - Store Closing

Sunday, March 26, 2017

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that after 29 years of doing what we love, it's time for us to close the Hot Spot. The cost of doing business has reached a point of unsustainability. We have met many great people over the years and appreciate your loyalty to the shop and the passion we share for skateboarding. I will forgoe the novel and keep it simple:


Without you this would not have been possible.

The last day at our physical location will be April 28th 2017. Stay tuned for discounts. Everything must go. All sales final.

Thank you for everything.

Major bummer, and I am incredibly sad to see the BEST Minnesota skate shop close its doors for good. BUT enough of the sappy shit, I just wanted to personally thank Josh, and the whole crew at Hot Spot for all the memories, advice, general bullshitting, and of course the best service out there. I don't think I came in there once without being addressed by my first name. I got my first board there back in 2005 and haven't looked anywhere else since then. I've been there on several occasions seeing a kid pick out his first setup there; be it a new one off the wall, or a used one from the back to get him/her started. I think everyone reading this will agree that once you went to Hot Spot, it became YOUR local shop.

So thanks Hot Spot & crew.
Best of luck with whatever is next.
