    Brunswick St Cycles Rumour

    Heard this yesterday:

    The original owner of Brunswick St cycles has been booted out. Apparently it was ugly. Some of the staff have quit over it and are calling for a boycott of the store (i.e. not to buy stuff from there).

    Anyone know anything more about this situation?

    Cheers

    No. I do not ride for fashion and I do not care if your bicycle is prettier than mine.

    Alright to be honest, i knew there had been dramas there a little while ago amongst staff, causing a few staff to quit over the job. This all happened a few months ago, and to my knowledge all the staff seem to currently be happy whether they have moved on or are still working there.

    I have been dropping in almost once a week to catch up and have never seen anything out of the ordinary. As far as i can see the workshop seems to be working the best i have seen in a while after talking to Shane, and Peter seems to be running the sales floor quite well.

    Every workplace has there issues...so what. As long as the store provides good customer service, great product range relatively good prices blah blah i see no reason to boycott it. As far as i am concerned i will still be a loyal customer to BSC.

    PS just cause i get good deals at BSC does not mean i have to say the "right things"

    Re: Brunswick St Cycles Rumour

    I'm confused.
    How can the staff boot out the owner?

    Is this some kind of twisted Labour Unionist method I haven't heard of?

    I don't see the fascination with this store. I used to go in there a lot but after such terrible customer service on several occassions I have stopped going there.

    And Damoh is right, shit like this happens everywhere, if _you_ still like their service then so what.

    Re: Brunswick St Cycles Rumour

    I've never purchased anything from BSC

    (although I have from the Elizabeth St store, where i got decent service)

    but i have heard of a few people being quite unhappy and refusing to give them anymore of their business... I always thought they had quite a good reputation, no?
