Evans Cycles announces new store openings in Leeds and Stafford

Evans Cycles has announced two new store openings, one in Leeds which opened on 17th June, and one in Stafford which will open on 22nd June.

Evans Cycles were previously based in Leeds Station but has relocated to a new larger store on Infirmary Street, while the store opening in Stafford will be the first branch within the town. To mark the opening, both stores will be running an opening offer of an extra 20% off all bikes in store.

The Leeds store will cover 2,041 square feet and stock 100 bikes across multiple disciplines, including road, MTB hybrid, electric and kids bikes, from brands including Cannondale, Trek, Brompton, Raleigh and its own Pinnacle brand. Clothing and accessories will also be available from brands such as Endura, Fox, Kalas, and Giro.

The Stafford store, covering 1,738 square feet, will have 75 bikes accessible on the shop floor across a range of disciplines and brands. Both will have a fully equipped workshop so local residents can have their bikes fixed by one of Evans’ expert mechanics.

Russell Merry, managing director of Evans Cycles at Frasers Group, said: “Our shops are always at the heart of the business and it’s fantastic news to welcome both the relocation to a larger premises of our Leeds store and an entirely new one in Stafford.
