Velo+ has announced plans to open a new shop in Iola:
We are excited to announce another Velo + location opening in Iola, KS in April!
About 9 months ago we started the conversation about opening a bicycle shop in Iola, with the help and guidance of a couple of KC bike friends, Ben Alexander and Randy Rasa.
After a couple of visits and doing our homework we decided this is a fantastic city to share in our love of bicycles and coffee.
We are just a short ride from the Prairie Spirit Trail and other great mountain bike trails. There is so much potential with our shop here and to be the first bicycle shop in this area is really exciting!
You can expect the same brands, service and of course great coffee in this shop.
We need great people to work for us in Iola and intend to hire locally as much as possible. We will need a bicycle supervisor, part time mechanic and coffee support.
Lastly we want to recognize Thrive Allen County in their support of our new store opening plans, thank you guys for what you do!
We expect to be open mid April.
Here’s to a great community, bicycles and coffee!
Velo+ currently has stores in Lenexa and North Kansas City, and we are incredibly excited to have them coming to Allen County!
A grand opening celebration is scheduled for April 29th. A large contingent of riders are planning to bike south from Lenexa to Iola, via the Prairie Spirit Trail. Plans are to have a local group riding north from Iola to meet them and escort them into town for a ribbon cutting and party. Join in the fun! Watch our Facebook Page for details.
