  • Skate shop opens in Bedford

    It’s cold up in Maine and Colin Franklin was looking for a milder climate. That brought him to Bedford.

        The timing couldn’t have been better.
        Bedford County is building a skateboard facility at Falling Creek Park. That led Franklin to start a new business, after moving to Bedford four months ago.
        Franklin opened Full Deck on East Main Street on Dec. 4, the day of the Christmas parade. The store is located next door to the National D-Day Memorial Foundation office.
