Pure Electric opens 11 new electric scooter and bike stores
Following its take over of 11 Cycle Republic stores owned by Halfords, e-mobility retailer Pure Electric will have reopened all the shops under its own fascia by 24 June.
The move means that 85 jobs will be secured.
In addition to selling electric bikes, escooters and accessories, the stores will offer repair and servicing facilities.
The company is also planning to open more UK stores and is drawing up plans for expansion in Europe, particularly in France and Spain.
Peter Kimberley, chief executive of Pure Electric, said: “Our ambition is to be the largest ebike and escooter retailer in Europe. We’ve got a fantastic team and demand is growing every day. Opening these stores is an important milestone for us.”
The store openings coincide with the Department for Transport’s consultations on the fast tracking of trials of escooters in towns across the UK as the government looks to expand the range of alternatives to public transport due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
