Blackriver Ramps has launched a new retailer support program, which provides skate shops with two exclusive fingerboard ramps, available only at local independent skate shop. Here’s the details from Blackriver:
Press Release: The difficulties with which skate shops are faced today have prompted us to think about ways to help them.
Skate shops are very important to us since they create space for our culture. However, this space is more and more threatened by big and often also cheap online providers. This requires the shop owners, brands and distributors to come up with new and creative ideas to once more make it interesting for kids and buyers in general to visit their local skate shop.
For that reason, we present to you today our "Support-your-local-skate-shop" project.
We have designed two unique and never before seen fingerboard ramps specifically for the skate shops. These ramps will be available exclusively in local skate shops - neither in our online store nor in the on- line stores of the participating skate shops. The skate shops can decide on their own how many ramps they want to order - no advanced orders or minimum order quantities.
As an additional benefit, the participating skate shops will be listed on our homepage so that customers will know where to buy the ramps.
If our project will result in positive feedback from the skate shops more exclusive products will be distributed to them in the future.
We hope that we can accommodate the skate shops with this project and that they will welcome our support-program.
Below you can find our first two ramps which have been available since March 2013.
