When Derby Store started up in a small unit over a year ago, there were no specialist Roller Derby shops in existence, with the exception of only a few British online retailers; skaters had to rely chiefly on both non-specific equipment (skateboard and cycling gear for example), or pay over-the-odds for imported goods!
After spending an afternoon in his small unit shop, it’s been a pleasure to see many members of the Roller Derby community call in for advice, peruse derby clothing, longingly admire the many skates on offer… or sometimes just even have a chat. It’s clear that the store is highly valued by its customers, and that Craig and Miss D Nightshade have a little gem on their hands, so it’s great to see that the shop has outgrown the little unit and now is ready for a move into a location more fitting for a leading specialist retailer!
So here’s to Derby Store! Come and find us to say hello, pick out your derby gear, or just chat about how brilliant roller derby is!
