All the hard work from the last 6 weeks has paid off.
WE ARE OPEN!
Saturday, Dominic got to the shop early, and when I arrived at noon, there were quite a few people in the shop. Carlin from SCORE, who has guided me the entire way of opening a business, was at the register paying for a t-shirt. He hugged me and said I was a natural and that Spun Bicycles will be nominated as “Business of the Month”. They are very excited about us!
Within the next hour, we had a new bike sold. That pretty much set my mood for the rest of the day as people came in and out, all day long. It was like a party and we got to hang out with friends, make new friends, all the while talking nothing but bikes. John was busy with repair bikes most of the day as word spread through the neighborhood that we were open. The skateboard bench was full with friends hanging out, watching BMX videos on the 60″ plasma TV, just as we envisioned.
The next couple of weeks we will continue to order inventory based on our customers needs, as well as figure out the hours that work well for the bicyclists of Northside.
Next up, BIG ASS GRAND OPENING PARTY on March 9th. Second Saturdays in Northside are always awesome, so please join us!
Thanks so much for your support –
Judi, Dominic and John
