Portland’s Premier West Side Bicycle Shop Consolidates Stores, Renews Focus
November 20, 2012–Beaverton, Oregon–Citing economic concerns and challenging lease terms, Sunset Cycles owner Roger Colwell has announced his intention to close the doors of his Beaverton location.
“A change in ownership of the space we rented left us in a tough spot,” said Colwell. “We had to choose between signing a lease that wasn’t in our best interests, or consolidating our resources and focusing on our Bethany Village store.”
As the premier bicycle store on Portland’s West side, Sunset Cycles offers bikes and accessories for every rider, from elite-level racers to weekend neighborhood enthusiasts and their families. Shuttering their Beaverton store, according to Colwell, helps his staff better serve their core customer and attract new business.
“The bottom line is we now will be able to concentrate on doing what we do best…that is, giving all of our customers a better all-around bicycle experience,” he said. “I’m as optimistic as ever for the future of the bike business and for Sunset Cycles.”
Shoppers looking for a bargain will benefit from the Beaverton store closing, where deep discounts of up to 60% can be found on bikes and accessories until January 31st, 2013.
