Erik’s Bike Shop relocates headquarters to Minneapolis from Bloomington
Monday, November 09, 2020
Erik’s Bike Shop Inc. is relocating its corporate headquarters, warehouse and distribution center to Minneapolis from Bloomington this month.
Erik Saltvold, founder and CEO of the 31-store retail chain, said the new location at 550 Kasota Ave. SE. in Minneapolis’ Como neighborhood made sense for both the business and its employees. At 100,000 square feet, the new warehouse gives Erik’s more than twice the space it had in Bloomington.
“Our business has been growing and we needed more space, and we wanted to be in a place that had better biking infrastructure, better options for our staff in terms of cycling infrastructure that’s in place,” Saltvold said, adding that many of his employees regularly bike to work.
