Erik's rebrands Rassy's in new building

Published May 7, 2021

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (BRAIN) — Erik's Bike Board Ski is rebranding Rasmussen Bicycle Shop — better known as Rassy's — as an Erik's store and re-opening it in a new building next Friday. Erik's, which has 30 locations, bought Rassy's in 2018

The city of West Des Moines purchased the current Rassy's location as part of its plans to widen Grand Avenue beginning this spring. This inspired Erik's to build a new, larger location. The new store has triple the sales floor area, allowing it to stock skis, snowboards and other winter gear along with bikes. 

The store features a second-floor mezzanine with bike maintenance services. 

The current store, at 301 Grand Ave in West Des Moines, will be open through Sunday, May 9. The store will be closed May 10-13 for the move. The new store at 950 1st Street in West Des Moines will open at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 14.

The new location, on April 22.
