Name of your shop: Trainbmx Location: 38170 Klein Vahlberg/ Germany Years in business: Since 2014 Employees: None
What was the reason for you to start a BMX shop? Trainbmx: While on my old 30 years old profession as a mechanic / master, I had no more desire and then spontaneously on 22.05.14 I founded my shop. Since I have been arranging myself in the BMX for decades, it was not difficult for me.
Name shop: Groundedbmx Location: Ninove Years in business: 8 Employees: 2 sometimes 3
What was the reason for you to start a BMX shop? Groundedbmx: I always knew I wanted to run my own company. Since my head is always full of ideas I talked to a friend of mine who has owned multiple businesses to figure out what Idea I should pursue. He told me to only go for the one I’m most passionate about. So, that was BMX :), a no brainer.
What was your first location like? Groundedbmx: I started Grounded as an online store but soon had customers picking up parts in my bedroom which turned into a stockroom pretty quickly.
