Skate the Foundry in Elkins Park to cease operations October 31

Skate the Foundry, a skate shop and indoor skating facility in Elkins Park, began in 2021 as an expansion of the original West Philly location. Brett Williams, a 2005 graduate of Cheltenham High School, and a collection of skateboard gurus have been instructing students of all ages ever since, and it seems as though things may be coming to an end.

According to a message shared by Williams, the facility at 120 Yorktown Plaza will be ceasing operations on October 31.

Williams’ message:

We hope to be in touch regarding the contributing factors that led to the decision. For our previous coverage of the facility’s vital presence in the community over the past two years, you can click here.
