As many of you know, Jim has been battling cancer for 2 years now and is definitely showing signs of improvement and will eventually get completely cured! However enduring all the treatments and the stress of running a retail store is proving to be very difficult especially once you throw in the side effects. It has forced us to rethink our short term plans and it is with heavy hearts and strong emotions that we are announcing the closing of Cyclissimo Sports & Equipment Inc. It has been a tough decision for both of us, but a necessary one as this will enable us to concentrate on getting Jim better. We want everyone to know that the past five years have been the best - the friendships and laughter, good times and fun have been the reason we have held on so long! We plan on keeping in touch with all of you and hope that you feel the same about us.
We are keeping up the hope that in the future, we will be reopening the shop a few years down the road - new and improved!
The store will be closing at the end of August and until then, we will be having a Store Closing Sale and everything is ON SALE. Please keep in mind that all sales are final and that there can not be any exchanges or refunds. We will also be clearing out all of the furniture, computers, banners, etc. at great prices. Just ask!! ( I know that everyone is keeping an eye on the tools and workstands.....) This is all starting today, Wednesday, August 20th, first come, first serve...
The Cyclissimo Cycling Club will continue as an separate entity and we are hoping to have the club rides start out of the Leisure Complex north on Industrial Parkway - we will keep you posted. Both Jim and myself look forward to more time off and hope to be on the club rides in the future! We intend on continuing to be part of the Club and hope to be able to help it grow and prosper. We all have something great here - let's keep it going!
Feel free to contact us at the shop or by email should you have any questions. We hope to see everyone personally and wish to thank you all for your continued patronage these past five years. You all have been the best customers in the world!
Jim and Tracy Coppola
