The October shop schedule is as follows:
Sundays – October 2, 23, and 30 – Shop open noon to 4 PM (closed October 9 and 16)
Tuesdays – October 25 – Shop open 4 PM to 9 PM (closed October 4, 11, and 18)
Thursdays – October 27 – Shop open 4 PM to 9 PM (closed October 6, 13, and 20)
As you can see, the shop is about to close down for the next 3 weeks to give Mr. Michael and I some much needed time to recharge. Also, please note that we are temporarily closing our wait list until Monday, October 24 at 9 AM to allow for catch up time on orders.
We are making some changes to our telephone system. If you tried to call this past week and got a message saying the number was disconnected, do not fear. Please call back again on October 24. Also, we will attempt to update our voice mail system, so if you can’t leave a message, please call back, but it is best if you wait until October 24.
The Free Bikes 4 Kidz collection day is October 8. If you have kid size bicycles that need new homes, please feel free to give them to this worthy cause. We currently have far more kid size bicycles than we can use, so we will be giving over 100 of them to FB4K. Bring them to one of the Allina collection points on the 8th.
We love receiving bicycle donations from you, but please never leave bicycles outside the shop. We have no way of knowing if they are meant for us or not, and the likelihood is that the bicycle will be stolen before we get it, especially if it is a bicycle to fit a tall man. We always need those.
I will post updated bicycle give away numbers in next month’s update. Thanks to everyone – volunteers, donors, customers, and recipients – who help us at MMRB to achieve our mission to provide bicycles to people who need them.
