Bradley Stoke’s  first-ever cycle shop – known as “The Giant Store – Bristol” – staged a belated official celebration of its opening last Saturday (7th November) with a stunt show in the Town Square.

Shoppers were treated to a day of shows courtesy of British trials rider and multiple World Record holder Andrei Burton, who is currently ranked number five in the world.

The daytime show was followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony and launch party in the store itself, situated at the Bradley Stoke Way end of the Willow Brook Centre mall.

After cutting the ribbon, Director of The Giant Store – Bristol, Paul Newman said:

“With our good friends at Giant we have created the ultimate cycle shop experience right here in Bradley Stoke and with the launch party we wanted to show the people of Bristol exactly what an amazing store we have to offer them.”

Giant riders attending the launch party to give the new store their seal of approval included Triathlete and Olympian Marc Jenkins and his partner, Olympian and 2008 World Triathlon Champion Helen Jenkins, along with local hero and Cross Country Mountain Bike Olympian and Commonwealth medallist Oli Beckingsale.

The Giant Store is open seven days a week and offers a great selection of bikes and cycling gear to suit the needs of every rider from budding novice to experienced enthusiast.

Posted on Friday 31st July 2009 at 10:35 am by SH (Editor)

Three further stores could open next month (August) at the Willow Brook Centre, Bradley Stoke’s new town centre shopping development.

Giant Bicycles

The town’s first cycle shop, branded “Giant Cycles“, is set to open on Wednesday 15th August according to a source within the owning company, ZeroG.

Giant Bicycle Store Giant Cycle Store

The sizeable store, on the corner of the main mall building at the Bradley Stoke Way end of the development, was reconfigured several months ago to have additional external entrances.

In answer to reader comments made on an earlier Journal story, the company has confirmed that it will be offering a cycle repair service at the new outlet.

Card Factory Window

Elsewhere in the mall, fitting out of the new Card Factory store is well advanced. Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive says the firm is yet to confirm an opening date but it is expected to be “mid to end August”.

Fitting out of the new Specsavers store has also started and the company has already advertised for staff, including Optical Assistants and a Trainee Dispensing Optician.

Over in the new Retail Terrace, the Brantano shoe store opened for business on Wednesday 22nd July, one day later than planned due to an “overstocking issue” the previous day.

Pets at Home

Animal superstore Pets at Home, now officially confirmed as a Willow Brook tenant after being revealed months earlier in The Journal, will occupy the remaining “under offer” unit (number 5) in the Retail Terrace. The company recently submitted a planning application for signage at the new store but fitting out is yet to commence.
