Evans Cycles has opened a brand new store at Ocean Plaza in Southport.
With over 6,000 square feet, the new store will stock over 150 bikes, covering road, MTB hybrid, electric and kids’ bikes.
This week also saw Starbucks submit a planning application for a new drive through coffee shop at Ocean Plaza.
And earlier this year, Southport Pleasureland owner Norman Wallis gained planning permission to build a new station terminal at the Ocean Plaza entrance to Southport Pleasureland Miniature Railway.
The new store is the seventh new opening by Evans Cycles this year.
Matthew Atkinson, head of retail at Evans Cycles, said: “As supply stabilises, we’ve been working closely with our key brand partners to secure a compelling range for our customers. Demand for cycling products and mechanical support remains high across the country so we’re thrilled to grow our offering with the new store in Southport.
“We look forward to growing Evans Cycles’ stores throughout 2022, as we encourage more people across the country to Enjoy the Ride.”
Brands include Cannondale, Fox, Pinnacle, Endura, Giro and fizik, and the store also comes complete with a fully equipped workshop where customers can get their bikes fixed by one of Evans’ mechanics.
Customers can also benefit from Evans Cycles’ Click and Collect service, with bikes available for collection fully built and ready to ride. The retailer also offers a free bike health check from one of its in-store experts anytime during the first 12 weeks after purchase.
The Evans Cycles Southport store is at Ocean Plaza Retail and Leisure Park.
Southport boasts a number of coastal cycle routes, both on and off-road. The new store’s central location within the community will help locals and visitors alike to explore the mixture of wildlife, sandy beaches and coastal marshes on two wheels.
