Classic Kickz takes a step in the right direction with SBDC partnership



Tyler McElroy is the owner of Classic Kickz, a sneaker shop on High Street in Morgantown, WV. The store carries a variety of limited edition shoes and most sought after apparel from some of the top brands. 

McElroy said after college he wanted to pursue his dreams of owning his own business selling shoes and clothes. 

“Before working with Frank and with the SBDC I didn’t know anything about the SBDC,” McElroy said.
