products

no.1 has board apparrel such as dc, element, forum, fourstar, dickies, ctrl / control and shoes from ipath, dc, etnies and other similar ones. it also has skate and snowboards and accessories and gear, plus the ladies section with brands like paul frank, svea, miss sixty etc. this one is surprisingly large on the inside! no.2 has retro and casual clothing plus some vintage t-shirts and stuff. i was surprised to see a few maharishi hoodies [guaranteed the only store in finland!] and a pair or two of pro-keds

clientele

the first one is inhabited by lazy looking skaters wandering around and sitting on a sofa laughing at their own jokes. second one has been empty everytime, i'd assume its visited by people who look for some more casual vintage and glam style clothing.

interior

the music at the smaller one was so psychedelicÊi felt weird after leaving..

union5 has two stores next to each other, the first one from downhill is a skate and board shop + womens shop and the second, much smaller one, is something like a retro-rock-fashion oriented boutique.
