Cycle retailer to open second store in Skipton development

A Yorkshire cycle store is to open a flagship Trek Partnership store in Skipton.

The new Chevin Cycles, which will be located on the market town’s new Albion Place development on the High Street, will boast more than 3,000 sq ft of bikes, clothing and accessories over two floors.

Sanjai Bhatia, director of Chevin Cycles, said:

“We are proud to be working alongside Trek and we want to build on our success over the last 35 years.”

“Yorkshire has become the Mecca for cycling in the UK. We are committed to providing the very best buying experience and after sales service.”

The store, currently being built by Eric Wright Construction, is perfectly located at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and right on the historic Grand Départ 2014 route.

It is in easy reach from Leeds, Manchester and surrounding areas.

It forms part of a larger £8.5m scheme being undertaken by developer Maple Grove Developments, which is transforming Skipton’s town centre and bringing a range of new local and national retailers to the area.

All Retailers are expected to be open prior to Easter 2014, with the construction programme well under way.

With an existing store in the heart of Otley and the new additional store on the High Street in Skipton, Chevin Cycles have all your cycling needs covered.

Graham Pilkington, senior development surveyor for Maple Grove, said:

“It is great to have Chevin Cycles and Trek Bikes in as part of the development, Chevin Cycles are a local company and will complement the existing mix of retailers in the scheme.

“This letting means the scheme is over 85 per cent pre let and with other interest in the last two units we hope to be fully let prior to the completion of the scheme.”

The new store will be opening its doors in spring 2014.
