Orchard Skateshop, an Allston mainstay for all things skateboarding, opened a second location at 297 Newbury Street today in the space previously occupied by Rescue—rather swanky digs for the popular business. While the new spot doesn't boast a mini-ramp nor an art gallery like its Harvard Avenue space, it gives the retailer significant exposure (notably, the tourist population) for a homegrown company. Stop in to shop Orchard's own apparel and accessories line, goods from Huf, adidas footwear, and Zero Skateboards.
