‘eBike specialists’ set to open in Chiswick 1 May

A premium eBike retailer looks set to take over the old Sofa Workshop store on Chiswick High Road.

According to a display put up in the currently vacant building, eBike retailer Fully Charged will open the store on 1 May, becoming the company’s fourth outlet.

Starting out originally in 2014 as a pop up business in Old Street station in Islington, the chain sells electric powered bikes including mountain bikes, folding bikes and cargo bikes with prices up to £8,000.

The business will be Chiswick’s fourth cycle shop, as we already have Balfe’s Bikes Chiswick, Fudges Cycles and Halfords, and there are two more Stamfor Brook and King’s Road in Hammersmith. The shop is directly opposite Fudges Cycles, which sells all sorts of bikes. Fully Charged do not sell traditional pedal power bikes.

Applications open for £40,000 sales role

The company looks set to move into the large unit at 147 Chiswick High Rd, which was vacated by the furniture retailer just over a year ago.

Fully Charged claims to be the UK’s largest eBike retailer, with the largest service centre located in a 10,000 sq/ft space in the arches under London Bridge station. Its existing stores offer technical support as well as demonstrations of the eBikes on offer.

An ad posted in the window is offering a £40,000 salary for a full-time sales role in the shop. Applicants need at least a year’s experience of eBike sales to apply and would be selling to ‘interesting High Net Worth and High Profile clients daily’.
