Weekly Update - Fix-a-flat, B-a-B

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on February 10, 2020

All, Really slow last week as the weather got rainy and snowy—sure fire ways to keep people off their bikes. Although a nice Scottish gentleman studying here came by to claim one of the remaining bikes as a B-a-B. He repeatedly mentioned wishing there was something like this back home in Scotland, so we’re basically cooler than Scotland.

We had our first Fix-a-Flat class on Friday but that was a no-show, sadly.
I picked up some bikes from the warehouse to keep my staff busy while we wait for the real moving to commence. We’ve built up just about every bike in the shop, save some old 3 speeds. A good amount of inventory has been boxed up and moved to the Urbana shop or stored here for use at our new space.
This week I’ll be meeting with marketing and IT folks to discuss how the new bike center will look from those respective areas.

The numbers:
Visitors: 46
Sales: $261
Bikes (B-a-B): 1 for $50
Memberships: 3 for $90
Tires/tubes: 4 for $26
