Every bike shop is different. But every bike shop also shares a common advantage: local expertise. By joining together under one cooperative banner (while remaining independent) bike shops across the country are already creating scale that gives members of The Bike Cooperative an edge in a retail environment that grows more competitive every year. Today, members across the country benefit from programs & services including:
We were looking for a rewards program that worked with Ascend. We found The Bike Cooperative that saved thousands of dollars in AMEX merchant fees.
The Co-op has provided my smaller company with access to services that would normally take significant time to acquire and administer. These services push us ahead of our competition and help us to perform at a higher level.
The Co-op’s diverse selection of marketing programs has saved us the time and money of sourcing those services individually. The Ride Club loyalty program has been great for creating loyal customers who spend even more on their return visits.
“Financing is an incredibly valuable tool for increasing sales. We find that given the opportunity to finance, a customer is going to spend twice as much on a bike purchase and be even happier with their buying decision.”
“So I’ve been using my regular Office Depot account all these years (ALL THESE YEARS) and accidentally discovered the Office Depot savings program while looking for another savings program on the TBC website. I submitted the form, they sent me a login, and boom: I’m saving 40-75% off things I’ve been paying regular price for ALL THESE YEARS. “
“The Freedom to Ride Financing program through The Bike Cooperative is a great way to increase sales and gain satisfied return customers. Unlike the Brand financing offered, customers get a card that is specific to our store, and the rates are lower. This program is simple to use for our busy staff and helps us obtain sales we would normally not get without the financing.”
