Weekly Update: Summer hours, bike donations

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on June 1, 2021

All, Our first week of summer hours was successful! We were steadily busy and able to sell some bikes, accept some donations, and only had one person bemoan our new hours. Yoshi, who volunteered a couple weeks back was able to come lend a hand, which was super helpful.

This week I’m hiring a new employee who’ll start ASAP. They have loads of experience and will be able to hit the ground running, which will be great. Since the E-week/newsletter blast that Sarthak sent out, we’ve received 12 donations here, so we’re working our way through that stock of bikes; we’ll continue that for this week if it’s slow.

The numbers:

Visitors: 44 (?)
Sales: $918
Bikes (refurb): 3 for $455
Memberships: 1 for $30
U locks: 4 for $84
Tire/tube: 16 for $73
