JRA Bike Shop at 8310 8th Ave. NW is moving two doors down to 8318 8th Ave. NW to a space twice as large.
Owner Eric Berg said the new space – which used to house Airlight Venetian Blind Co., which recently moved to Ballard – will allow them to carry more bikes and bike products, give them more storage space, “and in August when you’re in there you’ll be able to turn around, which is not possible right now!” Berg said.
The landlord is installing new windows and a new door, and JRA is installing light fixtures and work benches.
JRA Bike Shop is currently located on the right end of this building, but will be moving to the far left space around March 1.
They hope to open around March 1 (that would be two years to the day since they opened in their current space). Berg says you can check their Facebook page for news of their grand opening.
Berg owns a second JRA Bike Shop downtown. He splits his time between the two shops. He has two employees at the Greenwood shop, but will increase that during the busy summer months.
JRA Bike Shop in Greenwood is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The phone number is 206-782-1323.
