The sale of Skate Country has been circulating the last month and a half.
There have been some signals regarding the reported sale including the rummage sale held at Skate Country a couple weeks ago.
Habitat for Humanity has been without a West Bend outlet since April 23, 2021, when a smoky fire damaged the ReStore, 508 N. Main Street.
That store was slated to reopen May 10, 2021, however, it remains closed. A note on the Habitat website reads: “Our West Bend ReStore Location is temporarily closed until further notice. ”
Neighboring businesses to Skate Country say that location is perfect for a Habitat ReStore because of its large parking lot and the square footage of the building is by far larger than the store down the street.
Habitat for Humanity also has a ReStore located in the old Gander Mountain in Germantown.
