Evans Cycles has opened a new store at Leeds Station, replacing the old site on New Station Street.
The new store reaffirms a strong commitment to helping grow cycling within the region and brings the total number of branches within the UK up to 52.
With over 400 square meters across two floors, the new store will stock over 70 bikes for customers to try out as well as the latest products from leading brands like Trek, Brompton, Fox Clothing, GORE Wear and many more. The store also comes complete with a fully equipped workshop offering expert mechanical assistance, honouring Evans Cycles’ new 24 Hour Servicing Pledge.
The new store opening will also see the rejuvenation of the widely popular bike parking scheme, previously run in partnership with CyclePoint. Taking on full ownership of the initiative in a bid to encourage more cycling and ensure that local commuters have a safe place to leave their bikes when moving in and out of the city, 196 bike parking spaces will be available to use for just £1.50 per day.
In addition to the Secure Bike Parking scheme and state-of-the-art furnishing, customers at the new Leeds Station store will also have access to a host of the benefits shared with other stores across the country. These include 0% Finance, Price Match, Free Click & Collect, Free test rides and Evans Cycles’ market leading Ride to Work Scheme.
Commenting on the opening of the new store, Matthew Atkinson - Head of Retail at Evans Cycles, said: “We are hugely excited to announce the opening of our new store at Leeds Station and to be back home in the Cyclepoint unit. Network Rail, Leeds City Council and Evans Cycles have all worked together to reopen this vital facility for Leeds cyclists. We have invested in a substantial refurbishment and the facility now offers secure bike parking and an excellent range of products from leading brands including Trek, Pinnacle and Brompton. Our expanded workshop, along with our 24 hour service guarantee will keep our customers riding throughout the year. We have an exciting pipeline of activity planned for 2020 and look forward to sharing more store openings later in the year.”
