BOSTON, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Brick Harbor, a progressive online skate shop created by skateboarders for skateboarders, launched its retail and lifestyle related website today at BrickHarbor.com. Under the wing of Boston-based, online fashion retail giant Karmaloop.com, Brick Harbor will showcase hard goods, footwear and apparel from exclusive, hard to find, international and emerging brands. Their vision, interactive approach, knowledgeable staff and exclusive brand selection differentiate them from the competition.

Whitaker also states that Brick Harbor will be the destination for skateboarding worldwide, “We will populate our site with everything that’s important and relevant in skateboarding.

Brick Harbor hopes to cultivate a productive and rich relationship with its customers by both hearing from and responding to their feedback and suggestions, and by serving as their trusted source of information about emerging companies and riders.
