If you’re in the market for a bike, this just might be your day. There are a few hours left of REI’s used bike sale. Seattle’s flagship store located at 222 Yale Ave N is the site of the sale. At the time of this writing, there are still bicycles available. The sale continues until 4:00 pm.
This morning when the sale opened at 9:00, there were forty-two bikes according to Joshua Urness, REI Sales Associate. Most were road bikes, but there were also mountain bikes and an assortment of kids’ bikes. Among the selection, were bikes that have minor flaws, such as scratches in the paint. However, most of the bicycles on sale have been returned by customers for a variety of reasons. After quality checks, adjustments or repairs, the bikes are sold as used at considerable discounts.
Saturdays are always busy at REI, but when there’s a sale, people come in droves. This hasn’t been different. If you are shopping for, interested in, or hoping for a new bike, but are unable to make the sale today, you will have another opportunity. Joshua explained that the store plans to hold these sales every other month during the summer.
