Bike sales - Melbourne
Velo Cycles is one of Melbourne's Premium Independent Bike Companies with three busy stores located in the inner-city suburb of Carlton North. Our general bike store is located on the Capital City Bike Path. This store stocks a diverse range of bikes, with brands suck as Kona, Jamis and BYK. We are not a road bike shop but specialize in transit and weekend adventure bikes , this shop is well positioned for the increasing interest in bicycles as a primary mode of transport as well as for recreation. Our other two store are located just 100 metres away down Nicholson St. Velo Electric stocks a wide range of electric and cargo bikes with brands such as Kalkhoff, Kona and Tern. Our third shop is the only Brompton Junction Store in the southern hemisphere and exclusively stocks the UK produced folding bike and accessories.
With the re-opening of retail just around the corner, Velo Cycles is looking to recruit sales staff to join our dynamic sales team. Our locations mean we get a heavy commuting traffic in the mornings and evenings Mon-Fri and solid recreational traffic over the weekends.
We pride ourselves on strong customer service which our patrons have come to expect and enjoy, so any potential candidate will need to show that they will be able to live up to that expectation by being able to serve multiple customers at a time and remain cool-headed in a busy retail environment.
