Congrats to Revolution Bicycles owner Bill Addler of St. Petersburg, who is moving his bike store across the street to a stand-alone building at the corner of 4th Street and 30th Avenue in St. Pete.
It's a terrific building that Bill bought and has decorated into a cool retail space, complete with wood floors, earthy colors on newly painted walls, a tall ceiling, a ton of natural light coming through big windows, an outdoor deck and even a mini-bike lane painted from the side street through the parking lot right up to his buiiding front door. Expect a soft opening by the end of the month. Bill plans to have a Specialized premier store at his new digs, while also selling Giant bikes.
Here's Bill hanging out this morning at the new store on the cool deck, which will be used for bike social gatherings.
I loved the bike lane that runs through the parking lot right to the store. Funny thing is some bike lanes around the Tampa Bay area are actually that long.
Check out the special parking sign in front of Bill's store -- good stuff.
