Its not often that bike shops feature in the retail trade press in fact, this is the first time weve seen it so hats off to Glasgow Outdoor Experience and Alpine Bikes, cos they appear in RetailWeek, out today

Retail trade press play catch up

Theres a tasy double page spread on retailers adding try-out features to their stores. There are three retailers featured but the only pix are of Glasgow Outdoor Experience.

Theres also going to be a six page feature on GOE in the next Retail Interiors, a monthly title.
