SOLVED! What Does ‘SK8 LBS’ Mean, And Why Is It On The Time & Temperature Building?
What the heck is SK8 LBS? Someone here just suggested "Skate Pounds," but the answer is actually a lot cooler.
SK8 is predictably "skate," and LBS stands for Long's Board Shop!
Long's Board Shop in South Portland is probably one of the coolest places around... a super chill skate shop that's inviting to anyone who wants to give skateboarding a try, and pro boarders alike.
This week, the Time & Temperature building in downtown Portland will be flashing SK8 LBS to promote a wicked awesome donation to the Portland Skate Park Expansion.
"Ahead of the 15th annual celebration of Go Skate Day on Thursday June 21, 2018, Long's Board Shop is teaming up with Vans to raffle off a year supply of skate sneakers. All proceeds from the raffle will go toward the Portland Skate Park Expansion. The drawing will be this Thursday, June 21st. You could win a new pair of Vans each month for a year for as little as a $1 raffle ticket purchase!"
