In 2014, after just about 30 years of business, Newt and Harold’s closed its doors. The business started as a small sporting goods shop, but eventually pivoted toward skateboards and snowboards. It took its name from a former transmission shop in the space – named for a couple guys named... you guessed it… Newt and Harold.

Now, according to permit filings with the City of Boise, a tenant will slide into the old transmission-turned-board shop: Uptown Cheapskate.

The brand is a franchised resale shop of clothing aimed at teens and younger adults – with brands like Abercrombie, J. Crew and Urban Outfitters. UC buys clothes from trendy brands and resells them.

The new store will take up about 4,700 square feet.

The company launched in Salt Lake City in 2009, and expanded to more than 40 locations across 17 states – including in Meridian.
