In 1979, at the height of the California outdoor skate craze, Janice & Bob brought outdoor rollerskating to Atlanta, Ga. Equipped with precision bearings and soft urethane wheels, roller-skates flew off the rental shelves at a prime location across from Piedmont Park, eventually leading to the creation of the skate-shop building. Over the years, Skate Escape has grown into a well recognized, and, respected Skate, Skateboard, & Bicycle Pro shop. The store carries a full selection of Rink, Derby, Outdoor roller-skates, Inline-skates, Skateboards/longboards and Bicycles. A full service shop, Skate Escape is an authorized service center for many well known skate and bicycle companies for over 36 years. Skate Escape has lived up to its reputation, as the shop that, “Lets the Good Times Roll!”
At our same location since the 70’s, we have been fortunate to have had some of Atlanta’s finest young people start their working career with us. Art students, musicians, airline pilots, rappers, realtors, professors, producers, entrepreneurs and so much more. Many of these fine people are still part of the Skate Escape family. They are our history and our future.
