OLD FOURTH WARD — Avondale Cycles has shuttered its doors in Avondale Estates and plans to set up shop here in Atlanta.
The bike shop, which operated out of a 1,600-square-foot facility at 2754 East College Ave., is reopening March 4 at 151 Sampson St. NE.
The new facility, which will be called Atlanta Beltline Bicycles, is about 2,500 square feet. The larger space was a key factor in the decision to relocate, owner Benjamin Stimis said.
He will open Atlanta Beltline Bicycles March 4 at 151 Sampson St. NE, Atlanta.
Stimis started out in Avondale Estates with Label Discount, which sells Costco overruns. He put a few fixed-up bikes out front and discovered they sold quickly, so he expanded that part of his businss.
The Atlanta store will sell only bikes, he said.
