99 independent stores tell us of their fortunes over the past 12 months and the problems facing business in 2013

BikeBiz survey: The independent cycle retail landscape in 2012

During November BikeBiz, alongside the Cycling Sports Group UK, called on frontline independent cycle dealers to report on their fortunes in business over the past 12 months, as well as concerns to business going forwards and more.

Today we’re able to publish the first half of the feedback from our 99 strong panel, which was also printed in the recently mailed December issue. The second half is also now available, here.

BikeBiz would like to thank all retailers that took the time to give us their feedback and congratulate the two lucky retailers who won the signed British Cycling goods on offer to participants. These were Sunset Cycles in Cardiff, who scooped a signed Chris Hoy jersey and Halifax’s Cycle Gear, the winner of two autographed photos.

If you would like to add your thoughts on the survey results, or anything currently affecting your business, please leave your comments below. Further results will be published shortly.
