Making the News

Positive Pedals Bike Shop featured in Twin Cities Bicycle Club Newsletter

The Penn Central of Richfield neighborhood welcomed a new bicycle shop to the area last year -- Positive Pedals at 6603 Queeen Avenue South. Owner Rich Meredyk introduced a new customer-focused energy to the local bike scene with his business, and now he is attracting attention in the greater biking wiorld with his approach to customized service. Positive Pedals was featured in an insightful article appearing in the March/April issue of the Twin Cities Bicycling Club newsletter.

 

The article showcases Rich's love of biking and how his decision to open an independent bicycle shop grew out of his job selling cars and operating a bike repair shop on the side. While his love of biking was always strong, it was an accident that led Rich to take the plunge to become an independent business owner.

Back on the Market

Brueggers Building at 66th and Penn for sale 

Brueggers_Nov15.jpg

The Brueggers building at 66th and Penn has drawn a lot of attention ever since the bagel maker shut down. The plans for the building have been a mystery to us. Initially after being vacated, the building had a "for lease" sign posted. When that came down and work was being done on the building, it appeared that a new tenant had possibly been secured. But calls to the property owner revealed nothing. 

 

Recently, the parking lot was freshly resurfaced. Then shortly afterwards, a "for sale" sign was posted. So the building is on the market.

 

With such a high profile location, the corner of Penn and 66th would seem like an ideal spot for a business. We certainly hope to see a new business in there soon!


 

Thanks for a great Open Streets at Penn Fest 2015
