Abbotts Ann Cycles of Andover, Hants, has opened a new 3,500 sq ft store this week (January 2nd).

The shop has relocated after seeing 100 per cent growth in 2015, with a coffee shop, guru bike fit and Wattbike studio at the new location. Following the move, the retailer hopes to attract more female riders.

Abbotts Ann Cycles owner William Sawyer told BikeBiz: “Abbotts Ann Cycles was formed in a redundant car showroom at my existing motor trade premises. Having previously owned and successfully run another shop in Andover in the ‘90s I identified a need in this area for a shop that listens to the customers needs and offer unrivalled advice and enthusiasm. With my background in the retail motor industry I have tried to apply that level of professionalism to our shop.

“We started the shop in November 2013 and have seen growing interest and footfall since that point, the addition of Cannondale as brand saw significant bike sales increase. With the move to the new shop we are happy to announce the addition of Trek to our brands.

“The new shop will incorporate Tubs cafe, Guru bike fit,Wattbike training room and what must be the most comprehensively equipped workshop in the area with highly skilled staff. With the addition of two female members of staff we hope to encourage a lot more female riders into the shop.”
