ON YER BIKE

ON YER BIKE

When Vinny and I were discussing the current hike in fuel prices recently we had a lightbulb moment when we realised we had the perfect solution for local deliveries, a traditional bakers bike.  Way back in the 70's Vinny's dad was a Master Baker and deliveries often took place by bike. 

It just so happens that Vinny had acquired a similar bike a few years ago as a bit of a homage to his dad who died in the 1990's, we decided to dust it down and get a logo added and use for local deliveries. No sooner had we positioned it outside the shop but we had a request for a local delivery of one of our infamous hanging baskets.  The hanging basket was required quite urgently, as a gift for his visiting daughter. Unfortunately, Vinny was in the middle of painting when the order came in and he had to quickly jump on the bike and ride round to Mr Brimble's. He was delighted to receive the order so quickly.

It has since been a great talking point in the shop and customers love us riding up to deliver their purchases.

Retail space sharing isn't new. Large retail stores began subletting a few years ago to reduce retail-estate expenses, and benefit from store-within-a-store branding. We are familiar with department stores like Debenhams, and House of Frazer all of whom have followed this model for a number of years. However, with the recent pandemic and economic challenges many have struggled to maintain this successful business model predominantly due to exceptionally high lease and rates and intense ...
