I've ordered stuff from Performance Bicycle, out of North Carolina, for many years. I used to order stuff out of their mail-order catalogs before there was a WWW. And I've been aware that they had retail stores in faraway places, but I've never stepped foot in one.
That might change in April. On 4/8, they are opening a store here in Boise, in the Franklin Towne Plaza (near Cabela's).
According to them, "Every Performance store is designed as a friendly, one-stop resource where avid and beginning riders alike can easily find the bikes, equipment and gear they are looking for. Every Performance store stocks a full assortment of road bikes, mountain bikes, path and pavement bikes, women's bikes and kid's bikes."
Is that all? There are several brick and mortar "LBS" stores that already do that. I buy from Performance and Nashbar because their sale prices on tires, tubes, etc., are very good. Everything else being equal, I'll choose the LBS every time. And I'll probably remain loyal to the local stores I've patronized for years.
