CARY, N.C. (BRAIN) — Retailer Matt Lodder operated a small home-based shop offering mobile repair services for eight years, and as his business grew he realized he needed a larger space. Lodder recently moved his repair and bike fit operation into a 1,400-square-foot space here.

The Cycle Surgeon stocks bikes from Yeti and Argon18 and continues to offer mobile repair services.

“The customer’s needs are important to me, so I will always do my best to meet them. If they are too busy or unable to come to the shop, I can bring my services to them,” Lodder said. “I offer on-site repairs as well as a pickup and delivery service. If someone needs emergency service, I can offer expedited turnaround.”

Lodder also said his shop’s small size lets him be nimble. “Being small allows me the flexibility to personalize your repair or fitting experience,” he said.

Lodder also stocks clothing, components and accessories. He worked with Holly Wiese and Andy Davis of 3 Dots Design on the store design.

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. (BRAIN) — Retailers looking for ideas about how to tackle that nagging remodel project, spruce up their apparel departments or ramp their store branding efforts can tune in to Bicycle Retailer's Minute Makeover video series starting Friday.

The Minute Makeover series will cover everything from store layout and signage to effective apparel and accessories merchandising. A new video will debut each Friday through August 12 on youtube.com/bicycleretailer.

Jett Digital filmed the series with 3 Dots Design, Merchandising Werx and G3 Development Group, also partners in Bicycle Retailer's Retail Remodel Projects. The retail design gurus from 3 Dots Design and Merchandising Werx have also announced that they will hold a bootcamp later this year for specialty retailers.

The Rocky Mountain Retail Camp is scheduled for October 5-7, 2016, in Boulder, Colo., and will cover a variety of topics to help bike, run and outdoor retailers take their store from average to awesome. The camp will cover a host of topics and provide hands-on opportunities to learn how to properly analyze their stores and merchandise product, as well as time to dive into problem solving challenges specific to each retailer.

Besides retail design and merchandising, the camp will also cover topics like how to buy strategically, how to improve customer engagement and how to make financial sense of a remodel project. Gregg Frederick of G3 Development Group will cover these segments.

Registration for the Rocky Mountain Retail Camp is open now at rockymountainretailcamp.com. Tuition price includes a two-night hotel stay, meals and ground transportation in Boulder.
