A new retail outlet rolls into Uptown this week.

Go Time Electric Bikes sets up shop in Uptown Monday. The locally owned retailer, which has operated a store in Langford since 2012, has witnessed rapid growth as more people look to bikes  as a sustainable and cost-saving choice for commuting and for exercise.

“We’ve built our business to be Vancouver Island’s leader in electric bike sales and service and we are poised for tremendous growth,” said Go Time co-owner Paul Paterson, adding Uptown was chosen as the location for the store because of its location and commitment to sustainability.

“The new store at Uptown has inspired us to step up everything we do including extending our hours to seven days a week, investing in a new website and creating a store design that we think our customers will be very excited about.”

He said the store only sells bikes in-person to make sure buyers get the right bike with the ideal fit. Go Time also carries a variety of brands to offer customers lots of options in product and price, as they believe that not every bike fits every body.

“We’re very excited to be located next to the Galloping Goose switchback connector. It will give us a game-changing opportunity to use the trail to help our customers understand the features and benefits of our electric bikes,” said Paterson.

Go Time Electric Bikes, located at 111-3680 Uptown Blvd., is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday to Friday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
