BUSINESS SUMMARY:

The Bike Doctor is a retail store specializing in the sale of bicycles, parts and accessories, bike rentals and repair services. The business was founded in 1991 by the current owner and has existed in locations on Commercial Drive and now on Broadway for the past 20 years.

The business is very well known in the community and in the Greater Vancouver area for offering a wide diversity of products and for the expertise of its staff and as a result has a developed a loyal clientele.

The business focuses on selling the most popular bike styles and avoids the higher end products. By offering a large selection of the popular models of bikes, customers are confident that one of the options is going to be a good choice for their particular needs.

Bike Dr is the top retailer in western Canada of two of the world’s most popular brands of bicycle bags, the best rack brand and one of the best known lock brands. Bike Dr was again voted best bicycle repair shop runner up in Vancouver this year in Georgia Straight.

This is a turnkey operation in a large square footage property that has undergone recent renovations, has a competitive lease, a well-organised office, and an effective website. This is an opportunity to build on a profitable business that allows a new owner to benefit from an established customer base. It would be suitable for an owner operator who enjoys dealing with people and has an interest in the cycling industry.
