The National Bicycle Dealers Association has released its annual list of America’s Best Bike Shops.
The dealers’ association chose the top shops from among applicants, who were awarded points based on their application and the results of a visit by an anonymous “mystery shopper.” Applicants must have been an independent bicycle store with a physical store open to the public that sells bicycles, parts, accessories, and has a service department. Half of a store’s total sales must be related to bicycles, and be from a physical store location.
The online application asked shop owners to explain what sets them apart from the competition, how they develop customer loyalty, and what they are doing to make their corner of the globe more bicycle friendly.
This year’s award winners are invited to an evening celebration on Sept. 16, at the conclusion of this year’s Interbike show in Las Vegas.
The list of winning shops can be viewed here:
