Shop name: Waller BMX Location: Sheffield, United Kingdom Years in business: 8-9 Years Best year yet: 2020 Worst year yet: Well, we setup in 2012 and it's grown every year since.
What were your first thoughts on Covid-19 when it hit? Jack Waller: I think my thought process went a little like this: Holy s**t, we're fu***d... oh bike shops are essential... nice! Seriously though, when we saw businesses had to shut we were guttered. We felt ridiculously lucky but a lot of our friends who run their own local businesses were seeing the impact which wasn't nice.
Did you take any action from the start or were you thinking this would be over in a few weeks? Jack Waller: I don't think long term we were giving it much thought. Just taking it day by day and trying to inform our customers that we're operating like normal with a few measures in place.
Now, being in this situation for many months, how did you manage to keep your business rolling?
Fitbikeco. FUK-IT Tour Day 8 - Waller BMX. Second to last day of the FUK-IT Tour we stop by Waller BMX. Unfortunately their park was under construction and some rain found us but we had a blast meeting the locals and hooked them up with some stuff before we headed off.
