After all that is said. I’d be sad to see local bike shops close down through lack of trade. Just because I don’t use them doesn’t mean I’d like to see them wiped out by the uber stores online.
The guy right across the road from me closed down the other month. Made me feel quite gutted because he had been there YEARS and i’d been a customer of his when I was a wee nipper and BMX was all the rage.
I think it was more of a retirement move TBH but it was still pretty sad to see the shop shut.
