Ohio retailer Roll: expands to Chicago

Published April 30, 2013

CHICAGO, IL (BRAIN) — Top 100 retailer Roll: has opened a fourth location, its first outside of Ohio.

The 4,500-square-foot store in Chicago soft-opened in mid-April, said owner Stuart Hunter, who opened his first Columbus, Ohio-area store about eight years ago. He zeroed in on the new location on Clybourn Avenue in a Chicago neighborhood with a strong cycling community he saw as under-served by retail.

“It also helps that it’s a city we enjoy and love visiting,” Hunter said.

The store has the sleek, modern look and distinctive green color scheme that have become a hallmark of Roll:. Bike brands include Giant, Felt, Electra and Cervélo.
