Globe Cabin Hermosa, the brand's only U.S. brick and mortar store, entices shoppers with a wide selection of surf wear and skate wear.
The flagship store has been open a little over two years and has a strong following of local shoppers, according to store manager Tony Trinh.
“We have been in the South Bay as a brand for 20 years, but as more of a wholesale brand that sells to other stores throughout the world. When we opened in the summer of 2017, people were excited,” said Trinh.
The brand also retail stores in Australia, France and Hong Kong.
The welcoming, well-stocked Pier Avenue store includes apparel, footwear and hard goods such as skateboards and skates. Their footwear is among their most popular items, said Trinh.
“We have everything from skaters to walking shoes to casual shoes, boots and dress shoes. As far as a standout for us right now, I would say the Chet Thomas, for a retro style which has been produced since the 90s. We’re relaunching it here.”
One of the shop’s most unique products is their speaker skateboards. “People are really intrigued by them,” Trinh said. “They have Bluetooth wireless, so you can play your music.”
Also unique is the shop’s collaboration with Sesame Street.
Collectible Sesame Street skateboard decks support early childhood development and learning for kids through the Yellow Feather Foundation. A large percentage of the sales from these items goes to support the foundation.
“We have full skateboards and skate board decks,” Trinh adds.
Trinh loves being located in Hermosa Beach, and finds the community supportive and welcoming.
“I am not sure what the corporate office has in store for the future, but we will for sure continue to show off all the new merchandise that comes in. We’re here to show customers what we have to offer."
Trinh stressed that the flagship Globe store is a great place to see what the brand is all about, without the distraction of other brands.
"They can see our focus on including recycled decks that help the environment, as well as the Sesame Street collaboration and more,” he said.
The brand has an environmental focus with its products are guaranteed for life.
"We are very good on our policy on warranties,” he noted, inviting the community to stop by to check out the vibrant selection of products that make great holiday gifts, from long-sleeved T’s to jackets and shoes.
Globe Cabin Hermosa is located at 140 Pier Ave. in Hermosa Beach.
