On February 19th 2018 at 7520 Macleod Trail SE you’ll see a uninhabited black and red building. Lloyd’s Rollerblading Centre out of business.

At the request of the owner, Flo Cooper, the money will go to charity. “I really don’t like Lloyd’s closure.” said Orion, a grade 6th student, “I will miss the music and rollerblading with my friends.”
“I go to Lloyd’s once in a few weeks.” Orion stated. Lloyd’s is a place were you can rollerblade and listen to requested music from the DJ. Lloyd Cooper the founder of Lloyd’s passed away in 2002.
