Cycle World in Toronto shut down today

I was going down the 427 today so I thought I would stop in at Cycle World and the parking lot was full. A sign on the window said last day in operation. Liquidation sale. 60-70 % off everything. By the time I got there not much was left. Another bike shop gone in TO.

I went in there when the closing sale began and it was a total scam. Items that were say $300.00 the week before were marked at $500.00 with 30% off.

It is sad to see another shop go under, but then again if they had priced their stock fairly and, if they would have sold tires and gear for what we can get them for over the internet...

CW is blaming insurance costs and Honda for closing. Honda now wants to consolidate all it's imports into one dealership so was pulling their bikes out of the indy stores.

The liquidator had bumped all the items up to full book MSRP. managed to find a pair of battlewings for just over $300 which was eh but I needed tires, but for the most part is was a waste of time.
