Bike shop to expand

Ben’s Bikes Sequim, 1251 W. Washington St. in Sequim, announced a major expansion plan on March 13. Ben’s is adding 1,200 square feet to the existing shop to increase inventory and product lines to meet increasing demand from bike riders in the North Olympic Peninsula region.

According to owner Sam Chandler, the shop needs more space to display a wider collection of e-bikes, comfort cruisers, add high performance scooter parts and, with the refurbishment of the Lincoln Park BMX TRACK, more BMX bikes and equipment.

A grand re-opening is scheduled for April 1-2.
