Bike shop offers a ‘road-style’ deal on bicycle accessories
A bike shop in a rural Oregon town is offering a discount on bicycle equipment to encourage customers to use less.
Grandin Road, about 30 miles west of Eugene, has had a number of bicycle stores, including a bike repair shop, but none have offered a discount.
The store sells gear for all types of bikes, from mountain bikes to dirt bikes, and offers a number options for people looking to get started.
The shop is offering 10 percent off for bikes with tires that weigh between 5 and 10 pounds, and up to 25 percent off if they weigh more.
Grandin Road also has a dedicated repair station for dirt bikes and mountain bikes.
Bike shops in Grandin have seen a sharp decline in sales and have seen some stores close, including the one that closed last year.
Some bike shops have moved locations, but Grandin remains open and is hoping to re-open next year.
