MANCHESTER, NH (BRAIN)—The Bike Cooperative continues to grow its dealer base, welcoming a number of new members to the co-op as part of its fall recruitment initiative.
“We were extremely excited by the level of activity at our Interbike booth this year,” said Greg Brodsky, managing director of the co-op. “Our team was slammed for much of the show, by far the most traffic we’ve ever had from prospective retailers. By doubling the number of supplier partners over the past year, and with the launch of our new COBO line of private label bikes and P&A products, we’ve been able to generate some significant momentum. More dealers are taking notice of what we’re building, and that’s been really encouraging.”
The new members are:
B & L Bike Shop – Davis, CA
Bucks County Bicycle Company - Levittown, PA
Roberts Cycle Company – Chicago, IL
Spark Bike Run Sports – E. Taunton, MA
St. Helena Cyclery – St. Helena, CA
Wheels of Justice Cyclery - Oakland, CA
Zane’s Cycles – Branford, CT
“We’ve had quite a bit of interest from prospective retailers since returning from the show,” added Brodsky. “We anticipate another announcement of new members later this fall.”
The co-op is currently accepting 2011 membership applications through November 30 of this year.
