Hello GRBC faithful. We have some news.
We’re closing the East Paris store. For good, this time. Saturday, August 7 will be its final day.
The short version is that we have always had goals beyond just selling bikes. We can create a better community and host events and rides more easily with two locations instead of three. We think a great shop is better than the sum of its parts. Retaining core people, under as few roofs as possible, is part of that strategy. And, with the state of the industry and supply lines, it’s challenging to make the East Paris store look like a bike shop right now.
Then an opportunity appeared that could help another local business expand and improve, but required us to move out of 1200 E Paris.
We’re taking that chance.
Obviously there’s a lot of work to be done yet to make this transition, so we ask for a bit of patience. We have to move inventory, return repaired bikes, and clean out everything else that’s ours, including storage racks and display cases and a thousand other fixtures of various sizes.
If you have questions or concerns, please reach out.
