I have been shopping/supporting Fairman’s Skate Shop for about 10 years now and stand by it as one of the best local shops in West Chester. I remember the first time walking into Fairman’s and feeling nervous, I was very young and new to the whole skateboard scene/lifestyle at the time… Also because I was walking into a place were I knew many legendary skateboarders have worked and came out of, such as Bam Margera, Kerry Getz, and Andrew Cannon just to name a few. However, As I entered the shop I was quickly greeted by staff and they were very helpful and kind, right then and there I felt nervous no more, I felt right at home. After that first experience at Fairman’s I have been shopping and hanging out there ever since, I am now close friends with every staff and team member. I have Fairman’s to thank for growing my love and passion for skateboarding and thank them for helping me assemble my very first skateboard years ago.
Next time you’re in town make sure to stop by Fairman’s located on the corner of West Gay and North Church Streets in the heart of historic downtown West Chester. Even if you do not skate, snow, or surf they offer a wide selection of apparel and shoes for everyone. Below is a short description of the shop and hours of operation… Happy shopping!
