With a focus on being inclusive and affordable, The Bikery has operated its volunteer-run bike shop out of a storefront at 14th and S Main Street for years.
After successfully raising enough money to dig out of a financial crunch one year ago (thanks in part to many of you), the Bikery has reorganized and is moving its operations to Hiawatha Place and S Charles Street, filling a void left by the closing of Working Dog Bicycles.
That move starts today and will go through the weekend, and they could use a hand.
Details from the Bikery newsletter:
We found an awesome new space at 845 Hiawatha Pl S, the old Working Dog Bikes space.
We’re moving this weekend, 2/28-3/1, and we need your help to get there. Heck yeah, all volunteer hours will count towards shop credit!
We’re looking for folks to sign up for the following shifts, 4-5 people per shift:
- Thursday, 2/28: 1-5pm
Packing smaller items into crates, organizing stuff for loading, and other tasks
- Friday, 3/1: 11am-3pm, 3pm-7pm
Moving furniture to the new space and smaller stuff to the storage unit (in the same building as the new space); loading and unloading trucks
- Saturday, 3/2: 11am-3pm, 3pm-7pm
Moving furniture to the new space and smaller stuff to the storage unit (in the same building as the new space); loading and unloading trucks.
Carpenters will be handling installation/removal of installed items (racks, hangers, etc)
- Sunday, 3/3: 11-3pm
Cleaning the old space, repainting
We’re also looking for some needed supplies:
- White paint
- Paint rollers
Signing up to help
E-mail Harmony at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or if you have supplies you can share. If you can’t make it to a full shift, just let us know when you’d like to show up. We need a few extra folks with carpentry experience, so let us know if you’ve got those skills and want to put them to work.
