BMX specialist distributor Snap has taken stock of Merritt components having signed a distribution deal for the UK.
Snap co-owner Rich Moore told BikeBiz: "Our first delivery arrived today, so the product’s shipping out to dealers now. There is pent up demand from riders to get hold of Merritt in the UK, so it’s going down well with core dealers. It’s the first time that any of the products have been in the UK in significant numbers."
Retail arm The Source has this week begun the process of building its skate park underneath Hastings’ promenade, as detailed on BikeBiz back in April.
If all goes to plan, the underground unit will be up and running by the end of the year and will include a newly fitted out shop, among other things.
