How are you celebrating Local Bike Shop Day? Find out how The Bicycle Hub plan on driving footfall into store

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Local LBS_Day_Logo_28AUG21_250x114Bike Shop Day is the one day a year when independent bike shops across the UK can come together to celebrate their distinctive culture. It's the day for local bike shops to showcase their passion, knowledge and personalised service they offer to their local communities.

This year's Local Bike Shop Day will be taking place on Saturday 28th August, falling at an ideal time to encourage children to cycle to school and to inspire the nation to continue cycling throughout autumn.

Local bike shops are celebrating the day across the nation by offering their customers special offers and discounts to drive footfall into store.

 

Bike Hub Sign and BikeThe Bicycle Hub, based at the Cheltenham Spa Railway Station, is doing an exclusive offer on Local Bike Shop Day where people can bring in their bikes and get a free bike check.

This is where mechanics will check over the bike to see if it needs any work or if the customer already knows there is a problem, they can check it over and point them in the right direction on how they can get it fixed. The hope is it will encourage people to visit the shop.

Steve Short, the owner of The Bicycle Hub, said "We love this initiative and are always up for doing offers and getting more people into local bike shops".

For more info about the offer here.
