201 Mulberry is fast becoming the quintessential space for pop-ups and flash retail alike. Previously used by A Continuous Lean to host a pop-up flea market, the space is now taken over by the folks from http://quiksilver.com”>Quiksilver and http://autumnnyc.com”>Autumn Skate Shop, and they are going all out on it.
The large open space after descending a short flight of stairs in 201 Mulberry is transformed into an indoor skatepark where a full half-pipe ramp becomes grounds for various competitions held within the shop. Of course, other than a space for volleying some ollies, the pop-up shop/park is loaded with Quiksilver goodies such as skate denim, hoodies, tees, shoes and all the gear u need for your craft from decks to bearings and grip tape.
For skating fiends, the pop-up shop won’t be here for long as it will be closing on Aug 29 with the final skate competition held the evening of the closing day. However, if you won’t be able to make it out there in time, don’t worry– Quiksilver will be donating the ramp in store to a school in need and you just might see it in a New York City Park.
