Cambridge cycling mainstay and key community shop Cycle King will close its doors on March 20th for a full refurbishment.
The refurbishment is set to take place over the course of three weeks, with a provisional opening date of April 10th currently cited. In this time a temporary shop will be constructed to continue trade as normal. The shop will still offer around 250 cycles to take away and a further 250 for collection within a few hours.
“Our plan is to refit the entire store but not loose our identity as a local family cycle business who prides itself on knowledgeable, personable and a relaxed service environment. In addition to this we still pride ourselves as being one of the biggest family cycle retailers who aim to have our customers on the cycles within a few minutes of choosing a cycle - this will mean we will still display and stock hundreds of models at incredible value that are ready to choose, buy and ride," said retail operations director Darren Hunt.
He added: “We are very pleased to next year be celebrating our 50th anniversary; cycling is still strong in the communities we serve - as a local family business we continue to be supported strongly by those communities. This refurbishment will enable us to better serve the customers who have been shopping with Cycle King and Hawk Cycles since 1979 in Cambridge. The store will be a clear reflection of our future in the cycling industry - a bright, inviting and vibrant part of the community.”
