Just in case you missed the big news in the TC Ticker last week, City Bike Shop is moving! Since 1955, we’ve been a fixture at 322 Union Street, serving riders from all over Traverse City from the convenience of downtown. With the building sold, we’ve picked out a new spot that’s going to make cyclists really, really happy.
When we were looking for a new home, there was really only one spot that fit all our needs. Located at 747 E. Eighth Street, our new digs offer plenty of parking, more storage for inventory, and far better access to the TART for bike renters and test rides. It also puts us on the same stretch as our pals McLain Cycle and Fitness and Brick Wheels. For shoppers, this makes for a “Bike Block” where they can shop for anything without having to drive all over town. If you can’t find your new bike at one of these three shops, you just won’t find it!
Making this move isn’t easy, as we’ve loved our location and all the friends and neighbors we’ve meet over the years. We’re going to miss being next to Old Towne, Sixth Street, and being able to walk downtown for lunch and coffee. But we’re also really excited to be able to reshape the new space to perfectly suit our needs. The service area is going to be dialed in to help us more bikes more efficiently than ever without make Nate, Dustin, and Jeff run downstairs and carry them back up. The whole idea is to make us more efficient to serve you better...and carry even more rad bikes!
Right now, the place is to make the move to our new location by late September. We’ll keep you in the loop with specifics, but make sure you plan on stopping by to see us before Iceman Cometh Challege to see what’s happening at the new spot!
