Concrete Wave brings a slice of California style to the Northeast. For more than 20 years, the shop's primary focus has been skateboarding. In addition to stocking decks and boards from makers such as Alien Workshop, Zero, and Original Longboards, Concrete Wave sells skate shoes and clothes from Nike, DC, Vans, and Volcom, among others.

Despite the emphasis on skating—which extended to the opening of a partner skate park in 2008—the shop is also as passionate about powder as an enthusiastic makeup artist. Technicians in the board shop tune up snowboards in preparation for the winter snow season and also sell boards, boots, bindings, and apparel from brands such as Salomon, Vans, DC, and Dakine.

At Grime, racks abound with an eclectic cavalcade of styles, designs, and sizes, with new additions and local artist creations added on a weekly basis. Handpicked by owner Molly McGrath, the variegated inventory flanks both sides of the cozy store, allowing guests to hunt for one-of-a-kind treasures in all directions, much like riding a spinning teacup ride inside of a jewelry store. Vintage t-shirts ($5–$20) augment wardrobes with a dash of contemporary attitude, and jean jackets ($18) and rompers ($15–$18) drape shoulders and torsos in fashionable threads. Men can tout muscles, tattoos, and tattooed imitations of muscles with a variety of vests ($9), and ladies can accessorize with trendsetting selection of bags ($9–$16) and boots ($10+). Before revealing fresh duds to the outside world, guests can snap a royal photo next to a massive portrait of Elvis.

That's Entertainment is a 14,000-square-foot, independently owned rental emporium stuffed to the gills with an eclectic selection of DVDs, CDs, and games. Cinephiles can grab a shiny new blockbuster or indie flick off the gargantuan new release wall for their next stay-home movie night, and boob tube addicts can scour the vast selection of boxed sets for TV marathon fodder. That's Entertainment constantly updates its stock to keep up with new tech trends, so customers will have no trouble locating a hard-to-find gourmet disc to feed their picky children, Blu-Ray players, or Xbox 360s. On their way out, mid-movie munchers can pick up a large bag of plain popcorn and a two-litre bottle of sweet, bubbly Faygo soda from the in-store snack shop for convenient couchside noshing during their nail-biting 349th viewing of The Little Mermaid. For last minute rental needs, That's Entertainment is open every day of the week until midnight.

Kleen 'n Hard Sports' experienced staff repairs and restrings threadbare sports equipment until it's worthy of entering the equipment emporium's Valhalla of new and used sporting goods. Every preowned pad, helmet, stick, ball, and color commentator springs back to life sanitized and deodorized after undergoing Kleen 'n Hard’s thorough cleaning system, which lays waste to harmful bacteria and steroid-enhanced microbes. Protect newborn hockey skates with a set of skate protectors ($6.99–$9.99) or prepare for handicap-hoisting golf courses by outfitting bags with a dozen used balls ($5.99). An assemblage of practice hockey jerseys ($13.95) can put the finishing touches on Wayne Gretzky–themed Valentine’s Day costumes. Kleen 'n Hard also sharpens hockey skates ($5), restrings baseball gloves ($10), and both makes custom golf clubs and unpretzels them after particularly frustrating bogeys.
