Looking back, as we’re about to turn two years old, there have been a lot of wild twists and turns for The Ave. We’ve met a lot of awesome people, collaborated with some great artists, and been surprised at some of the celebrities who have walked through our door, to get geared out.
Perhaps the most mind-blowing experience yet, comes this week, when The Ave and owner and creator, get blasted into millions of living rooms, on ABC’s Shark Tank. Shark Tank stars billionaire Mark Cuban, real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion and branding expert Daymond John and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary as the five sharks. Over six million people per week watch Shark Tank!
Nick went to an audition, and made it on the show, getting a chance to pitch The Ave to the sharks, telling them all about how unique our store is, and about our own patented shoe-printing technology. We’re sworn to secrecy about the sharks reaction to the pitch, but this Friday at 8 p.m. (7 Central), the whole world will get to see, so check your local listings! You can find out more info about Shark Tank on the show’s website.
Meanwhile, check out this awesome illustration by our friend Daniel Militonian, owner of Dunkees.com, commemorating Nick’s appearance on Shark Tank!
We’re really excited for Friday night. Tell your friends, tell your moms, tell your grandmas and grandpas to tune in to ABC and see if Nick tames the sharks, or gets eaten alive.
Stay tuned, and see what unfolds next for The Ave!
