The high street is dead or so they would have you believe but speak to anyone and they will moan about the likes of Amazon and Tesco.
After the recent success of Rare Trade record shop in Kilwinning we thought it was time to stop talking about 'wishing I could have a shop' and just go for it.
Dead End St. will cater for men and women in Ayrshire with a love of subcultures. We will also be online to cater for customers all around the world and will stock some of the biggest and best names in Subculture style as well smaller independent brands from the UK and around the world.
Growing up in the 90's I had missed the majority of Mod, Skinhead, Casual, Punk, Northern culture but there have always been pockets that have kept the faith. It was through a lot of bands in the 90's that I got into different subculture style and music.
I now run TheBritishSubcultures.Com which I use to help promote bands, brands, shops and help them reach more people that might be interested iin them.
We are trying to bring a bit of that to the West Coast of Scotland where there are already numerous nights and clubs that have been carrying the torch for years.
As with any business getting off the ground is difficult which is why we are asking you to support our idea. We are trying to give people somewhere to shop in a small town, push brands online and make a go of a dream we have had for years so all your support is crucial.
We don't expect you to just throw money at us for nothing so we hope you find something that will appeal to you in our list of rewards.
Thanks for reading and thanks for helping!

Risks and challenges
We have spoken to a number of great brands who are eager to push ahead. We have found a great premisis that would be perfect. We are currently building an online shop to help showcase our stock around the world.
What do we need? Any and all backing will allow us the opportunity to bring in stock, fit the shop and secure our future for long enough to become established. I will be continuing with my current job (I am able to work from home) to be able to do this so none of the money raised will be going in anyones back pocket.
If we reach our target that would really help us, if we exceed it that would be incredible and really help with the challenges ahead.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
