Co-op News

The Bike Cooperative is sharing big news at CABDA midwest this year. In addition to making it easier to join the cooperative by lowering membership fees, TBC is also unveiling Co-optics, an innovative new tool to help keep IBDs ahead of the retail curve.

Co-optics features include:

  • Powerful, network-wide benchmarking for important retail metrics
  • Real-time results to see how your store measures-up against the network
  • Built-in retail-optimization tools that identify profitable changes and opportunities

Co-optics (developed with Retail Toolkit) connects members of the cooperative to benchmarking insights and tools that take the guesswork out of improving retail performance. With its built-in optimizer powered by anonymized data directly from member stores across the nation, Co-optics adds ease to tough retail decisions and makes profitability more manageable.

The Bike Co-op’s President, Lindsay Gaskins explains, “TBC is entirely focused on empowering local bike shops, and we’ve been aggressively evolving and innovating to help our members win in a retail environment that’s growing more complex.” Central to this effort is Co-optics.

Every new member makes Co-optics even more powerful, including 31 member locations recently welcomed to the co-op.
