BikeShopHub.com, an online retailer of bike commuter products, will be relocating to Tucson this spring. The company is currently located in Flagstaff.
BikeShopHub’s owner Josh Lipton said the move should benefit him personally and professionally. He and his wife both have family here and the larger cycling community should help with business even though the majority of its sales are online.
Lipton said currently about 95 percent of their sales are online orders, but he believes the bigger cycling community here might increase local sales.
He said they won’t have a traditional retail outlet, instead they will have a small showroom with the goods they sell and an order desk for people to purchase their items.
Lipton said they will begin moving the company in March and are looking for a warehouse near downtown or the University of Arizona.
