Pluto Sports is open 12-6pm everyday this week, and we are hoping to get restocked on Bones Bearings and Bones Wheels later today!!! We probably won't be restocked on Venture and Thunder Trucks until tomorrow - so we can't put together any complete skateboards for 7.75", 8.0", and 8.25" widths until sometime Tuesday afternoon when we expect to get a truck shipment that will have trucks for boards that wide. We should have trucks for Mini sized skateboards later today (7.0", 7.25") and do we have Independent Trucks to fit 8.5", 8.75", and 9.0" wide decks now. It has been very difficult to get restocked on skateboard goods during the pandemic, but Pluto Sports is doing our best to get top quality decks, wheels, bearings, griptape, and hardware in the shop and ready to roll out the door. We have Vans Shoes in stock in most sizes right now, and we have helmets, knee pads, elbow pads, and wrist guards too. All the area skateboard parks are open and free to skate.
