First Zippy’s – then Meander’s – now, Aaron’s … Another business is moving from West Seattle to White Center. Just out of the WSB inbox, from Aaron’s Bicycle Repair proprietor Aaron Goss:
Aaron’s Bicycle Repair, Inc. says thank you and goodbye to Morgan Junction and West Seattle proper.
However, they are only moving 3 miles away to White Center!
This is very exciting news for White Center and we have been welcomed with open arms by the community.
For several years, Dubsea Bikes, a non-profit bicycle repair and ride group, has been lobbying for a bike shop in Rat City.
Starting February 1st, 2013 that will be a reality!
The bike shop will be located in the White Center Square, anchored by Hung Long Asian Market.
The new address is 9988 15th Ave. SW, Suite E.
Phone, e-mail and web will remain the same. Look for updates on the shop’s website soon. www.RideYourBike.com.
Manager Gregg Sundin said the economic downturn and increasing online sales forced the decision to downsize. The shop will re-focus on bicycle repair and service but will still sell bikes, parts and accessories.
Also offered will be community-building events like Full Moon rides, Free Flat Tuesdays and hosting Dubsea Bikes repair parties.
Here’s a map to the future Aaron’s location. The space the store is leaving was the Morgan Junction state liquor store until four years ago, when the state closed it, and the bike shop moved in from another space nearby.
