So there’s no real easy way to put this, but with a very heavy heart I’m super bummed to inform all you homies that The Mint will be closing it’s doors at the end of this month. I’m sure this will come as a shock to many, but this is something that was decided last year, and now that our shop lease is almost up, it looks like we gotta go. It was a fuckin hard ass decision to make, but I decided I wanted to step away from the skateboard retail biz to focus on video/film making and temporarily return to my hometown San Diego. Although our shop will not be here in Osaka, we’ll still be skating and filming, and we hope to continue things on with The Mint in the future. But for now, we’ll just be on a temporary hiatus while we decide on what’s the best direction for the future of The Mint.

I’d like to deeply thank all of the brands, distributors, customers and most importantly the homies who have supported The Mint for the past 4 1/2 years. It’s been an absolute pleasure to serve the skateboarding community locally here in Osaka and globally as well. It was a dream come true…for real! I have so many great memories and made so many dope friends here at The Mint. I’ll never forget all the people who have come through and hung out. It’s been fun.

But all good things must come to an end…

So…we’re having a huge blowout sale this month starting today! Shit is gonna be mad cheap yo! Our last day open for business will be 2/17 and we’ll probably have a sayonara party, so look out for those details.

Also if you’re in the hood, please don’t hesitate to stop by for a beer and some final good times here at The Mint. I’d be stoked to see you all!

Thank you.
