This family-run cycle business is operates 2 shops in the Devon Coastal villages of Starcross & Dawlish. The husband and wife partnership has developed an enviable reputation for new and used bikes and accessories, and as an online outlet for bike parts which are shipped across the UK and overseas daily. The business also benefits from the trade in cycle hire, with both shops being on the beautiful Exe Trail, a 22-mile cycle path which attracts thousands of families to its safe and scenic off-road tracks.
Piora Bike Shop operates from two premises: The prominent shop in the centre of Dawlish is located on the main shopping street, and because of it’s visibility to every motorist passing through the town it drives the sales of new bikes within the business. The spacious second outlet is in the village of Starcross, and enjoys a very well-stocked retail counter, spacious bike showroom with mezzanine (currently used for product photography) and a handsomely-equipped workshop for general maintenance and emergency repairs. Included in the sale is the branded company van.
Dawlish is famous for it’s long, sandy beaches and its dramatic railway line which hugs the coast on its westward journey. Many cyclists arrive by train and Piora Bike Shop is on a highly visible corner at the beginning of their ride. It has become the natural place to purchase accessories or hire a bike before taking the ferry to Exmouth, cycling up to Exeter and back to Piora’s second site in Starcross.
This opportunity would be ideal for a couple or family looking to develop an established local business with a huge summer boost. The online business has vast potential for growth, particularly as cycling has grown 200% since the beginning of 2020. Knowledge of bike maintenance would be an advantage.
