After several months of remodeling, Schuh enlisted Steve Wojtowicz, a former artistic skating coach for Nothing Fancy Rink, to help fulfill his vision and take on the role of general manager of the rink. Now, the newly remodeled and rebranded roller skating rink, Piccadilly Palace, is ready for its grand opening at the beginning of June.
