Phase 2 Opening Locaton in Wauwatosa’s Village

Phase2_shopWauwatosa’s new skateboard park isn’t the only reason for area skateboarders to be excited. The Village in Wauwatosa is thrilled to announce the addition of Phase 2 Skateshop. Specializing in skateboards, clothing, hats and accessories, Phase 2 is a top destination for area boarders.

“We offer the largest variety of skateboards and skate-related products as possible. Regular skateboards, to longboards and cruiser boards, plus shoes, clothing and accessories,” noted owner Mark Zitzer. “We also try to stay on top of the brands our customers are looking for as well as the up and coming brands and styles.”

The timing and location of this shop is ideal. With the City planning to begin construction on the skateboard park in Hart Park in the spring 2015, Phase 2 will have a front row seat.

“With Skateboarding becoming more and more about community and neighborhood skateparks, skate plazas, and DIY spots, it made sense to seek a location in a community like Wauwatosa,” noted Zitzer. “Wauwatosa has a budding skateboard community and is clearly supportive of the sport.”

Work has begun on the building and Phase 2 is slated to open mid summer at 7346 W State Street in the Village in Wauwatosa. Other locations are in Brookfield and Milwaukee’s East Side.
