A mobile skateboard shop caters to youths and promotes the sport by bringing products directly to skate parks.
The Tre Truck is New York City’s first mobile skateboard shop. Stocked with a selection of boards, protective gear, and snacks, the Tre Truck travels to various skate parks and locations around New York City purveying merchandise and using its Twitter handle to communicate locations. Operating with a relatively low overhead enables the owners to offer products at a reduced price and keep the sport affordable for NYC’s youth.
The Tre Truck is a great example of mobile retail spaces working to expand services and reduce margins.
