VIENNA, Va. (BRAIN) — Northern Virginia-based Spokes, Etc. held a ribbon cutting this week for its new store in Leesburg, Virginia. Mayor Kristen C. Umstattd and other town officials attended the ceremony.
The 8,000-square-foot Leesburg store, which replaces Spokes, Etc.’s store in Ashburn, is in the Village of Leesburg, a town center that has such national businesses as Wegmans, Charming Charlie and Firebirds Wood Fired Grill among its 60-plus boutiques, entertainment spots and restaurants. The new store is 3.2 miles from Spokes’ former location in Ashburn.
The move to Leesburg enables Spokes, Etc. to have a new retail space that’s 30 percent larger and a presence in what’s becoming a popular shopping destination, said Jim Strang, the company’s president.
“We’ve been pleased with the amount of walk-in traffic and the many customer events hosted by the center,” he added.
The new store has a full service center and a display floor dedicated to Spokes, Etc.’s bicycle lines, clothing and accessories. The architect was L2M in Baltimore. Morgan-Keller Construction of Frederick, Maryland, was the general contractor.
Spokes, Etc., based in Vienna, Va., and founded in 1985, is a full-service retailer with five stores in Northern Virginia. In addition to Leesburg, Spokes’ locations include two in Alexandria, one in Vienna and one in Fairfax.
Spokes, Etc. carries Trek, Specialized, Seven, Salsa, Surly, Gunnar, Waterford, Currie Technologies, Gore Bike Wear, and more.
