It's going to be a real shame to loose such a great local bike shop. ... See MoreSee Less
Well it's time to confirm what some of you might know already & some of you may of heard versions of..
I have decided to close the shop at the end of September, as the numbers purely don't add up, & haven't for a while...! Bike sales are down on what they need to be & that being the biggest revenue provider for the business is why I have had to put this in place.
For now the shop is trading as normal, so feel free to book in your repairs & bikes fits as normal. Regarding bikes that are in stock, well it's time for some lucky folk to get a cracking deal.....!
I personally plan to continue in the industry & have a few options I'm looking into, watch this space.
I feel lucky to say that I have had some really great loyal customers over the years, some have become good friends, as far as my team, well words cannot express my gratitude & fondness I have for each one of them, & I wish them every success in the future. ... See MoreSee Less
