Bury St Edmunds Cycle King bike shop rebuilt after massive fire to open next month




A Bury St Edmunds bike shop rebuilt after a devastating fire three years ago is due to reopen next month.

Cycle King is set to reopen in its new premises, on Angel Hill, on Saturday, August 22 at 10am.

The bike shop was gutted by flames on September 29, 2017 with damage also caused to the neighbouring restaurant Francela and the One Bull pub.

Two men who started the fire were sentenced in court last July.

Planning permission was granted last year to rebuild the shop with four new flats.

Following the blaze, Cycle King opened a temporary store on Moreton Hall.

Darren Hunt, group retail managing director at Cycle King, said: "It is time to vacate our temporary home as we are delighted to announce we will be re-opening our Angel Hill store on Saturday, August 22 at 10am.

"The store and building look fantastic and we are so pleased we were able to make such an improvement for our customers and community from such a terrible event.

"We hope our customers like the new store that will have a much bigger selection of bikes, spares and accessories and a new workshop for maintenance and repairs.

"I would like to thank every customer who has supported us over the past three years - its been an incredible period for us and the team."
