- Anyone know whats happened to Zero G in Bristol
Very sad to be hearing this. The Downend store was my LBS, I always found then very helpful and friendly, bought a few bikes and bits from them over the years.
I thought it was a bit odd when Jon announced he was leaving last Friday.
Feel very sorry for the staff, it’s come around quickly though, they were only advertising for a mechanic for Downend in April!Posted 4 years agowreckerMember
Zero G Bedminster, Park St and Downend stores have now ceased trading.
Giant Bradley Stoke is unaffected, business as usual, please visit http://www.giant-bristol.co.uk for more details.
Shame, Paul is a decent bloke. I hope he continues with the bikefest. The Bedminster store was the best LBS within a mile or so of the centre. The Downend store had some good people in, but they held no stock. I kept trying to buy from them, but they had nothing to sell me (as a MTBer).Posted 4 years agoandyrmMember
I was in there earlier today to collect a bike. Very, very sad times.
Paul is a top bloke who’s become a good friend, as have many of his team at the stores.
Tough economic times, slow sales, all the usual things that are decimating the UK retail industry were to blame and it’s a real shame for all affected, including Paul. I can’t imagine how it must have felt having to deliver the news.
From what I hear though, Bikefest, Bristol Belter etc are all safe and Paul will really get stuck in.
Good luck to him.Posted 4 years agoPhilbyMember
Sad to see the stores close and staff lose their jobs, particularly in Britain’s first Cycling City and soon to be European Green Capital.
On a selfish note I am relieved that I cashed in some gift vouchers, which I have had since Christmas, for a new helmet in the Specialized Helmet Amnesty a couple of weeks ago.Posted 4 years ago
