“Bike store owners may be faced with more challenges than ever before, but that does not mean they cannot succeed in the current retail environment,” said Tim Leaver, TBC vice president of marketing. “The newest Co-op members are great examples of retailers that have become very successful in their own right, yet continue to look for ways to improve and grow.”

“That’s where The Bike Cooperative can take successful retailers to the next level,” said TBC vice president of operations Carl Michelakos, “by using our buying power to help them reduce their AMEX processing costs, and drive more sales with our consumer financing and Ride Club automated customer follow-up and rewards programs.”  Michelakos added, “Our services work best for high-performing retailers who want to maximize their profitability, so adding more quality shops that recognize we can help them perform even better is both encouraging and rewarding.”
