As a kid I dreamed of opening my own skateshop. Being a resident of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, I felt the need to contribute to my community. Opening a core shop where people of every age, younger or older, would find a place to belong and a place that would provide all their needs to perform skatewise was such a dream. It's during summer 2010 that my need to create this place became too strong to ignore. But where was the ideal place for this project? At first I though about Ontario street where lots of people shop, however I felt it was too far from the skatepark and I wanted the riders to be able to just stop by. So the project was a no go until such a place would free itself. The idea was pushed away from my mind because it could have been months or even years before I could find the right spot. However the skate God decided otherwise because the following day, at the corner of Hochelaga and Moreau appeared a "for rent" sign.
Four corners, one for rent, one occupied by a PFK and the two others by the Préfontaine metro station. As I got out of my car to write down the phone number of the owner, I could clearly hear the boys skating the ramp at the skatepark across the street. I contacted the owner which was thrilled at my idea of having a skateshop. Two days later the lease was signed and we were already at work.
The first time I set foot inside our new home I was speechless. Old moldy carpets, semi-fonctional electricity, numerous holes in the walls... Was this really going to happen? Would I be able to turn this into my dream skateshop? I guess you already know how it turned out but it was only with the help of numerous friends, family and with several companies that we were able to pull it off and create the real core shop that you know today. A big thanks to everyone who lent a hand at that time and those who still do today. Without all of you Rollin would just not be.
Our grand opening was on Octobre 12th 2010. The shop as come a long way since then to become what it is today and what it will be tomorrow. We would like to thank everyone that as supported us from the beginning of our adventure. We hope to be able to give more and more to the local scene and you, the clients, are the only people that will make it possible. So we would like to personally invite you to come discover in great numbers the ONLY core shop of eastern Montréal. Moreover, it would be impossible for me to let you go without citing our rider Éric Riedl: «We keep it real, homies!» - Julien Turner
