When SHUT shuttered, Sep. 2017

It was exactly one year ago when SHUT Skateboards shuttered its Lower East Side home. The brick-and-mortar shop had lasted a decade on Orchard Street.

At the time, we were told that SHUT was scouting new neighborhood locations and would open sometime in spring 2018. That’s didn’t happen, of course. However, the brand rebounded with a two-weekend, end-of-summer pop-up shop on Mulberry Street that continues tomorrow.

The temporary SHUT shop is inside Chrome HUB NYC at 238 Mulberry from Friday to Sunday (September 2). Special sales are ongoing, as well as workshops, art shows, and happy hour parties.

Founded in 1986 by skateboarders Rodney Smith and Bruno Musso, SHUT carries the legacy of the New York City skating scene. They mainly focused on wholesale and once maintained offices around the corner on Mott Street. The brand went dark in the nineties when Smith co-founded Zoo York with Eli Morgan Gessner and Adam Schatz, but relaunched in 2006. The flagship SHUT Local store at 158 Orchard Street followed one year later.
