We opened our bike shop in 2008 but our 10 year anniversary sees us having to leave our location and move to a new unit. Thankfully the new unit is only next door but it still means a lot of turmoil for us as fit out and get used to our new surroundings.
The bike sector has changed in the 10 years since we opened. The increasing use of online and of course the increases in rent, rates and other costs unfortunately has signalled the death knell for many smaller cycle retailers, seeing their doors close for the last time.
For us, the changes across the sector sees us taking the decision to no longer sell bikes but to focus on our workshop and parts retail. This means we've relocated to a smaller unit and we're now focusing all our effort on continually improving our technical skills to ensure we remain up to date with the latest technology and techniques.
We will of course continue to deliver what we believe is a service offer that is second to none and we will be refocusing our parts and accessory lines to meet the needs of our customers.
We have been in our new unit for a week or so now and we've been amazed at the fantastic reception we've had from our customers old and new. We're a bit smaller now but we think our new unit better suits us and will serve us and our customers well in the years to come.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
