The rumors are true. A fixture in the Richmond bike scene for 95 years, Rowlett’s, near Staples Mill and Broad, is closing. The store website has this to say:
Store Closing Sale
EVERYTHING IS ON SALE
AFTER 95 YEARS IN RICHMOND, ROWLETT’S
IS CLOSING ITS DOORS FOR THE LAST TIME.
WE APPRECIATE THE LOYALTY OF OUR LONG-TIME
VALUED CUSTOMERS; HOWEVER
ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END.
THANKS FROM FRED, JAMES, KATE, J.P. AND DENNIS!
