The Bicycle Pro Shop location at 3240 Duke Street is closing down and moving its inventory to other locations throughout the region.
The store is in the midst of closing sales, offering 30-50% off on some items. There are a few mountain bikes left in the store, and a table full of miscellaneous bicycle accessories, but we’re told most of the bicycles are being shipped off to other locations.
The store has been located on Duke Street for ten years, but manager Christian Dent said increasing traffic on Duke Street started to hurt the business starting five years ago. The store is located right off the busy street with a very small parking lot. Dent said he heard from customers that many didn’t want to have to wait in very heavy traffic to get to the shop.
For the last year, he said the company looked around for another location in Alexandria, but couldn’t find anything suitable.
Most of the merchandise and staff will move to the chain’s Springfield location at 5230 Port Royal Road. Dent said the Alexandria store is likely to close for good sometime in mid-to-late November.
As an Alexandria police cruiser with sirens blaring passed by, presumably heading from police headquarters a block away on Wheeler Avenue, Dent noted that he’d miss the customer base in Alexandria but would not miss the noise from Duke Street.
