California Bicycle vs Online.
California Bicycle Inc has a very different business model than the typical modern retail store. We have a small, highly trained and efficient staff that specializes in providing one-on-one service and support to our customers. It is very difficult to provide this level of service to a person who is purely shopping on price, over the faceless Internet, when the sum total of interaction is a few mouse clicks followed by a series of automated messages. As a result, where most stores aggressively reduce their online prices in order to “be competitive in the national market,” we are the exact opposite – we focus on our in-store customers, offering the best local value and service we are capable of providing. Our in-store prices are extremely competitive with the Internet market – meaning we don’t “punish” our loyal, local customers for shopping locally. This allows you to buy local, with local expert advice and support after the sale, at prices that are very similar to what you would have paid to get it shipped to you from an Internet reseller. We welcome you to visit, call, or email us to enjoy our tremendous selection of value-priced quality merchandise, our renowned service, and our over 4 decades of technical expertise. Our in-stock inventory consistently includes many components that are absolutely unavailable online, anywhere. Come spend some time with us, our staff, our family and you will soon realize why for over 40 years and countless accolades we will provide and continue to provide the absolute best service you will find.
