Scene. Established 1997.
We first opened our doors in May 1997, as the first and only skater owned and operated store in Preston located on Friargate, our home of 19 years. The shop came from humble beginning with a premises that initially only included area for boards and a till, run 6 days a week by Davo alone. Since then we’ve moved premises twice, but kept true to our roots and stayed on Friargate.
Over time the shop has developed tenfold, not only in size and status but also in terms of what it has been able to achieve for the community around us. Traditionally skate shops are a community hub seen as a way in which local talent, be it in music, videos, skating etc. can show their skill and be recognised, and we are no exception. Scene has developed past the normal confines of a skate shop in order to survive and we have encompassed all elements of the skateboarding and streetwear lifestyle in order to create something truly unique.
Over the years, there have been many events organised in the name of the shop, and since our tireless work with the council to get Moor Park Skatepark built, there is only going to be more of these! The future for Preston is bright, and we are proud to champion this new era of skateboarding to our loyal city and our loyal supporters.
Thank you for everything.
