Our address has changed. We haven’t moved: we’ve grown. Drop by this evening between 5 and 7-ish for beer and a bite to eat as we formally switch our main entrance from SE 9th Avenue around the corner to the much more visible 908 Hawthorne storefront.
We opened in June with a shop facing 9th Avenue in the Red Men Hall (on the right in the picture). We had negotiated a right-of-first-refusal on other units in the building that might open up, expecting that perhaps in a few years we would want to expand. Well, less than a month later we got our chance. The only other unit in the building that we could connect directly to our present one was becoming available, and it faced bike-busy Hawthorne (on the left in the picture). We leapt. We’ve been beavering away on the expansion ever since.
The extra space lets us expand our product lines to soft goods and more bikes, while retaining the airy, kid-friendly feel of the space. Look for stylish, functional clothing and soon the entire Basil collection. It’s been a real stretch but we know it’s the right thing. Everybody knows that Winter is the peak buying season for bicycles with chaincases, mudflaps, and generator lighting, right? And wool knickers! We’re ready. Are you?
