Many of you will be aware that Saddle Safari is moving to a new, larger location – after 19 years in it’s current premises. The new shop will be on the site of the old “Computer Cavern”, opposite the Dean Street car park.
Today we popped in for a look at how things are coming along, and can report…. it’s HUGE!
It has taken 2 years of planning and getting permissions etc – but if you like bikes, then you should be excited! There is much increased space for products, in a custom designed space that should have a light and airy feel, compared to the somewhat cramped current premises.
We were shown around by Dan, who like most other staff members, has been with the business for some time – 11 years in this case. He explained how each area of the premises will be used – obviously more space for bikes, and clothing, plus new product ranges – for example the very popular “GoPro” helmetcams.
The shop will also cater for all types of rider – starting with a dedicated children’s section, right up to the ability to specify a top-end Trek bike, with custom paintwork and components, on an instore PC as part of what Trek calls “Project One“.
Its all very exciting! Dec 1st is the official target opening date – we will keep you posted, or check out their own website www.saddlesafari.co.uk
