TheTouringStore.com is Closing! It is time for Wayne to ride off into the sunset!
I am closing TheTouringStore.com after 15 years of helping cyclists. It has been a great ride, but at age 63, it is time for me to slow down a bit and find new things to do. I am not retiring . . . just looking for something different from the life of a 6-days-a-week small business owner. Maybe I will finally have the time to meet some of my customers on cycling tours of my own!
Since I don’t use a shopping cart to take orders, I have to make changes one page at a time. Most of my sale prices are posted, but I could not get to everything in time for the announced beginning of my sale. I will continue to post more sale prices and even some items that are in stock but not yet on the website.
For those who have not shopped with me before, I have no shopping cart. I provide personal service by phone and email, and take orders the same way by taking card info over the Phone, or PayPal which we can arrange by Phone or Email. See my contact info near the top and bottom of every page.
I have a lot of inventory to move, but no deadline for closing. It may take me a few months to clear out my inventory. I will begin by posting sale prices on my most popular panniers, packs and racks. These will be excellent prices for you, yet provide me with the income I need to meet my obligations to my suppliers. I expect to be very busy with these sale prices! My inventory is limited, as I will no longer be ordering replacements as colors and sizes run out, so you may not want to wait too long to make your purchases. Once my most popular items sell out, I may begin to reduce prices for quicker sales, but you will want to purchase soon for best availability and color choices.
Over the next few weeks I will be adding more and more items to my Clearance Page. Clearance items will be at exceptional values!
Please be patient with me if my service is slower than usual during this sale. I cannot hire extra employees to help me with this sale, which may be busier than most sales I have run. If it takes me some extra time to respond to communications, or ship your packages, you can rest assured that I am working as hard as I can to keep up.
I am grateful to all of my customers who have made my business so fun and successful for so many years. I have had the best job in the world, helping cyclists all day! What a great group of people! I will miss you!
