Roller skates become a hot commodity during the COVID pandemic
Hundreds of people lined up - some even sleeping overnight - to get their hands on a hot commodity during this pandemic: roller skates."The demand for roller skates during the pandemic has surged," said Shayna "Pigeon" Meikle, owner of Pigeon's Roller Skates Shop on Retro Row in Long Beach, CA. Pigeon's Roller Skate Shop opened its doors for a flash sale on Thursday, July 16. "We sold out of almost everything on day one and then, whatever was left, we sold out in day two," Meikle said. Meikle hopes the increased popularity of roller skating on social media will shed a light on the history of skate culture.
