A new Main Street skateboarding and snowboarding shop is opening for business for the first time today.
According to a press release announcing the opening, Kliq Board Shop, 85 West Main St., is the brainchild of friends Nick Collins and Todd Collins (unrelated). The co-owners, both 33-years-old, are natives of Carroll County.
“They have skated and snowboarded together throughout life, even before skateboard parks were built locally,” the release states.
Both Nick and Todd Collins have business backgrounds. Nick Collins owned Stereotype Boardshop in downtown Westminster until he sold it in 2007, while Todd Collins currently owns a Glen Burnie-based used car dealership.
Their new store has already amassed a fan base of more than 300 Facebook likes, with skaters already expressing their enthusiasm.
Of the new shop, Nick Collins stated, “We are dedicated to carrying the core brands and representing our community in the way a local board shop should.”
Todd Collins shared similar sentiments.
“We are a tight knit group who strives on the belief that working together leads to progression and success,” Todd Collins said in the press release. “We plan on being a mainstay in the industry and local community for years to come.”
According to the release, both owners plan on being active within the local skateboarding community, including in the maintenance of local skate parks.
