As Conte’s Bike Shop celebrates its 5-year anniversary in Falls Church, the company announced it will be relocating to a larger location nearby.
The new location will be located at 1118 West Broad Street and open around Oct. 1, according to co-owner Wayne Souza.
It will include 3,767 square feet of space, which is significantly larger than its current location, Souza said.
“We needed a larger location because we needed more retail floor space, a larger service area and we took the opportunity to build the regions most state of the art fit studio,” he said. “We didn’t have the ability to grow where we were.”
Conte’s Bike Shop serves customers with a variety of skill levels, according to Souza.
Since the pandemic, locations across the area have been experiencing increased demand for products, the website said.
Though the store originated in the Virginia Beach area, Conte’s Bike Shop has locations around D.C. and Maryland too.
Once it is safe, the new Falls Church studio plans on celebrating the grand opening by hosting group bicycle rides around the area, Souza said, adding that the shop will be looking to USA Cycling for best practices regarding the health and safety of participants.
The hours of operation will be the same.
According to the Facebook page, people can stop by the store from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sundays.
Looking toward the future, Souza said that they are considering expansions for other locations as well.
