We had an arrangement for a time  with a local bike shop that happened to be next door to take some of our higher quality bikes on consignment. The owner knew our work and had confidence in it. He actually did not take his commission, considering it a donation. Floor space is definitely an issue for a bike shop, so they would have to have the space, and the  consignment discount would have to be right for both parties.

Do any community bike shops have a partnership or agreement with another organization or store, such as a thrift store, to sell refurbished bikes? The Greasy Chain has a challenge of maintaining day time open hours, so we are exploring the option of having our refurbished shop bikes for sale at another store or location that is already open all day Mon-Fri, for example, that already has foot traffic, and thus potential for more sales.
