    Default Skateshops in Downtown Toronto

    My HS Band and I are going to Toronto next week, and I was hoping maybe to purchase a couple things for my new setup when I'm there. We're going Downtown/Eaton Center one day, and I was wondering if there were any good skateshops very close to the Eaton Center?

    Thanks guys.

    there is a skate shop called So Hip It Hurts in downtown toronto it's about a 15 minute walk from the eaton centre. its on queen st w. go south on yonge street from the eaton centre and turn west on queen st w, keep walking on the left side of the road and look for the sign.

    hope it helped
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    Thank you! I was just curious if there was any even closer then that? Because I don't know if I could walk that far, cause I need a chaperone probably if leaving the Eaton Center..
