Floods affect St. Louis-area bike stores

When the Meramec River overflowed its banks last week in west St. Louis County, it had an impact on bicycle shops in the region, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

“This last week Monday through Thursday was bad [for sales],” Chris Brewer, manager of Trek Bicycle Store of St. Louis said in the article. “But Friday through the weekend was good, so we kind of made up for it.”

Fox Creek Outfitters, which just opened its doors in November in Eureka, Mo., also reported lower sales because of the flooding. While the store stayed dry, much of the surrounding area was under water.
