  • Shop Talk: The ins and outs of Berkeley businesses

    CRUZ SKATE SHOP The world of female roller derby competition is flourishing, and California’s first brick-and-mortar derby shop has relocated to Berkeley. Sandy “Motley” Cruz and Marci Daniels decided to move Cruz Skate Shop from the San Francisco’s Mission District to 2505 San Pablo Ave. (near Dwight) to be closer to customers in the East Bay and in Sacramento, Chico, Stockton and other Central Valley cities. Cruz Skate Shop is the only place where people can come to try on a variety of roller skates, said Daniels. “We specialize in outfitting roller derby girls, but we serve recreational roller skaters, too.” The store had a soft opening March 2 and will hold a grand opening celebration Saturday, March 16.
