ASB MAGAZINE: Sanbah Grindhouse announced the closure of the skatepark and the café sections of the business. The decision has ‘paved the way’ to extend its current retail footprint and allows for the addition of a new store. In an announcement to customer via Facebook, Sanbah Grindhouse continued;
Whilst this is sad news particularly for our team and our valued customers; we are happy to be unveiling an extension to the existing retail space along with an exciting new store which will become our neighbour and take over the skatepark space.
As a business we are passionate about being more than just retail, we want to provide our team and the community with opportunities to get out and be active in a fun and inclusive environment. The skatepark was part of this vision and the café combined with this to bring an exciting mixed retail and active space unlike anything else in the Newcastle area.
We have loved bringing the community a number of active programs including our school sport, after school programs and littlies programs which will all run as normal in Term 1 until the closure on the 4th of April. Between now and the skatepark closure, we would love our customers to come in and enjoy the space.
Due to the existing retail space expanding, it will take over the space of the café. We are currently working with our team on the logistics of closing the café to renovate the space. We will keep our customers updated when more information on the closing date is available.
We are proud of what we have achieved and thankful to our team who have worked with us during this time.
From April 2020 the retail store will be re-branded, with the addition of snow apparel and hardware to its offering. This is an exciting new direction while staying true to our purpose of sharing the love of an active lifestyle.
The new store that will open in the skatepark space will be revealed soon.
