BRAINTREE, Mass. (BRAIN) — Massachusetts retail chain Landry’s Bicycles is expanding its business to five stores with a new location opening in Braintree this spring. Landry’s said it has signed a long-term lease to occupy 8,000 square feet of retail space on two levels at 44 Granite Street (Route 37).
The store is currently undergoing interior remodeling and is expected to open in April. The new store will be managed by Patrick Flaherty, who has worked with the company since 1996.
“We are really looking forward to bringing Landry’s high standards of customer service to the South Shore cycling community, and we are eager to help increase bicycling activity in the area,” said Landry’s president and co-owner Peter Henry. “We have been busy hiring and training staff to prepare for the new Braintree store,” he added. Landry’s currently operates stores in Boston, Natick, Norwood, and Westborough.
The store will include a bike-fitting studio and storage capacity for nearly 500 bikes.
“There's a lot of growth potential for bicycling on the South Shore between Boston and Cape Cod,” said Flaherty. “We're looking to help develop road, mountain, recreational, and commuter bicycling in the area, especially with the Quincy Adams MBTA Station only two miles away and the nearby Neponset River Bike Trail that connects to Boston Harbor.” The store is also conveniently located across the street from the eastern entrance of Blue Hills Reservation, which contains many miles of popular mountain biking trails.
