Bike Gallery plans to close their Woodstock location and re-open in Westmoreland.
Bike Gallery Partner Kelly Aicher said the reason for the move is that rent had doubled. The store at 4235 SE Woodstock first opened 12 years ago and the location had been a bike shop for over 40 years prior. “We are sad to leave a spot that has been a bike shop for over 50 Years,” Aicher shared with us in an email today.
The new location will be 6717 SE Milwaukie Avenue. It’s just 1.5 miles west of the Woodstock store and Aicher says it will be much larger. Not only will their be moire room for products and service but it’s right across the street from Laurelwood Brewing and Moreland Theater, so you’ll have plenty of excuses to linger.
The final day of business in Woodstock will be this Saturday the 14th and there’s a big sale to lighten their load before the move. Aicher says they plan to be ready for business at the Westmoreland location on January 22nd.
And if you had a favorite mechanic from the Woodstock store, don’t worry: all the staff will move to the new location.
Bike Gallery will still have five other locations including downtown, Hollywood, Clackamas, Beaverton and Lake Oswego.
