Palazolas Bike Shop Is For Sale

I ran into Jack this morning and I told him that I was in Palazolas yesterday asking to have Matt Johnson’s Martini Shaker Engraved and they told me that the engraving machine was sold.  He told me the bike shop was for sale as well.  So I let him know that if he sent in a blurb about selling the Bike Shop at Palazolas I’d run it for him.

He just sent this-

I turn 66 in Sept. and I can not do this forever so I am looking to sell or at least down size in the interim. So we have put up for sale the bike shop , the Trophy business and the Embroidery machines.

I would like to see some one in Gloucester get the Bike shop. I have never been so busy with bike work and there is not another place to go in town.

I have over 50 new bikes (Schwinn, GT, Red Line, Ross, Torker and a few others) plus all parts (tires, tubes ,wheels,brake and gear parts etc.) and accesories  ( helmets locks, lights etc.) all going for less than wholesale.

Did You Know? (Joey C. Is Down With Buddha)

Photo by E.J.

That Joey C. is down with Buddha?  In case you can’t read his t-shirt, it says: “Buddha is my Homeboy”. He had it made at Palazolas Sporting Goods and he tells me that the people at Palazolas had the lettering done in 15 minutes. Now that is service you won’t find at a chain store.

Overlooked Gloucester Treasures- Palazola’s Sporting Goods

Palazola’s Sporting Goods, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

Yesterday I stopped by Palazola’s to visit my buddy Stephanie who happened to be off for the day.
What I didn’t realize because I haven’t been in there for so long is what a local treasure the place is.  In one store you can get sneakers, skates sharpened, bike repair, tennis racket re-strung, custom monogramming, Gloucester Pro baseball caps, customized local sports imprints, and much much much more.  It is amazing how many sporting goods and sporting goods services that they cram under that one roof.
If you haven’t been by in a while, stop by and see just how much they offer.
