Two bike shops in the running to be the Best Small Shop of 2019

Posted on in Business News

Best Small ShopsOver the next 4 weeks we will be introducing you to the fantastic shops that have been shortlisted for the Best Small Shops competition 2019. We will be mentioning a few at a time and telling you about the wonderful ways in which they continously help their communities and why they stood out to the judges.

This year two bike shops have been shortlisted, said to have stood out to the judges "for a range of reasons including the fantastic work they do for their communities and the levels they go to when engaging with current and potential customers". It is great for the cycling industry to be represented at events such as this one that champion independent retailers and help to promote the benefits of shopping indie.

"These shops stood out to the judges for a range of reasons including the fantastic work they do for their communities and the levels they go to when engaging with current and potential customers"- Indie Retail, 2019

We hope that the promotion of the two bicycle shops will help draw more attention to IBDs across the UK. Details of the two shops can be found below!

Arragons Cycle Centre

Located in Penrith, Cumbria, Arragons Cycle Centre offers cycle hire, a Shimano Service Centre offering emergency repairs, and specialist wheel build. It is a family run business, established for over 40 years but now with a brand new shop - one of the North's largest. Arragon's Cycle Centre were also shortlisted in the 2018 Best Small Shops competition and are once again being recognised as a true independent family shop that have remained at the heart of their community by supporting events and entertaining local clubs.

 

Rides On Air

Rides on Air in Wallingford has a new store with over 100 bikes and accessories in stock and covering all disciplines from children's bikes to adults including disabled cycles and the latest craze of eBikes. They regularly take part in community events that benefit local charities while promoting the benefits of shopping at IBDs.

The names and details of the other 23 shops that were shortlisted can be found on the Indie Retail news page.
