Miracle At Richmond Re-Cycles
Have you ever seen the movie Miracle on 34th Street where Kris Kringle is the Santa Clause at Macy’s who tells customers what stores to go to for the best deals? I had one of those experiences today and it was awesome. Richmond Re-Cycles down on West Cary Street didn’t have exactly what I wanted for a new wheel, but it was all good. Not only did Ricky offer to order something or do a custom build, but he suggested I go check around the city for deals and whatnot in order to replace my mangled back wheel without breaking the bank. Little things like that make my day and definitely make me want to go back and to pick something up next time. Customer Experience is King.
The hours that Re-cycles holds used to drive me nuts until I was finally able to make it in the store and talk to the folks who work there. I’ve had the same overly helpful experiences where they will fix small things for free while I stand there and will always point me to the best deals or even other stores to find what I need. Cheers to Re-Cycles!!
Denim handmade in RVA! Go check out the opening tomorrow night!
“This fall, VCU’s Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs has been tasked with preparing a comprehensive revitalization plan for the area immediately surrounding, and including, the 17th Street Market.
This effort is being supported by the Enrichmond Foundation, the office of Councilwoman Cynthia Newbille, the Richmond City Economic Development Department, and the Shockoe Bottom Merchants Association. Please take five minutes and answer nine questions regarding the Market, its surrounding area, and its public programs so that we can better get an understanding of how to make it an exciting food destination. Survey will close at 5pm on October 19, 2012.”
