November 1, 2010 — Bicycle Retailer & Industry News announces the Nation’s top 100 bicycle retailers. These retailers were selected because they excel market share, community outreach, and store appearance and are unique in their own success.
When asked what set them apart from their peers, Bike Lane (Shenandoah/The Woodlands,Texas), responded: “Listening carefully to our customers and friends, we continually strive to provide the best possible service and bike product to every person that walks through the door. We keep full-time employees and employee turnover to a minimum and keep everyone involved in running the store, relying also on our race team and club members. And, during our Friday and Sunday-evening work parties we share an occasional soda to make up for the six 14-hour days’ weekly schedule. Through our customers, we keep in close touch with our community with the bike club and team sponsorships, charity rides and benefit events.”
Congratulations Bike Lane!
