Marseilles couple opening bike shop near canal towpath
Jerry and Jeanne Domoleczny are opened a full service bike shop, Saturday July 27, 2013 at 11a.m. The shop is located at 1313 Chestnut St. on the west side of Ottawa just north of the Illinois and Michigan Canal. The Bike Shop is a full service bike shop, with sales, rentals and service available and will sell Raleigh, Diamondback and Sun bikes, along with accessories, including helmets, lights, bells, racks, clothing, tires and tubes, baskets and locks. The Domoleczny’s hope to build much of their business along the adjacent towpath with shop sales focusing on bikes for children and adults who are recreational rather than performance bicyclists. Bicyclists riding along the Canal will be allowed to use The Bike Shop’s bathroom, refill water bottles, rest in an air-conditioned room, buy soft drinks and bottled water, drop off vehicles in the parking lot and, of course, shop!
ADDRESS: 1313 Chestnut St.
HOURS: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays and Fridays through Sundays; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. alternating Tuesdays. Closed alternating Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays
