Editor’s note: This is part of an occasional series about how locally-owned, small businesses in the Longview area are faring — and in some cases surviving — in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Business is booming at Longview’s Woolley G’s Bike & Fitness, despite the COVID-19 pandemic causing an industry-wide shortage of bicycles and the parts needed to repair them.
“We have been really, really lucky throughout the entire year of 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic,” co-owner and operator David Hernandez said. “We have seen a lot of sales and service work, just people coming in to facilitate their outdoor adventures a little bit more now than ever before. So, we have been really happy through (the pandemic) from a business perspective.”
Woolley G’s sells bikes, accessories, nutrition products and apparel and offers maintenance and repair services. The store also hosts group bike rides for the community.
