We just found out that it’s time for Bike Saviours to find a new home by April 5. We’re excited to change it up and start fresh, but it will be a lot of work. Since we’ll need time to prep everything and find a place, the shop will be closed March 25 onward with as short of a hiatus as possible. Unfortunately, this also means that Art Night is on hiatus until we can figure everything out with our new space. What we’d like from you is-
1) Tell us what you’d like the new shop to be like– i.e. where it is, what’s there, etc.
2) Let us know if you know of any great spaces or nice realtors that we can move into. We’re all looking, but if you know of any retail/warehouse spaces with about 1000 sq feet around public transit hubs in Tempe that is relatively inexpensive please tell us!
We can also offer any landlord a tax deduction receipt for rent breaks.
3) Help us move! We’ll be moving the weekend before our lease is up, which is March 30 and 31. Free beer and hugs and smiles for all helpers!
Join in on the fun here:
4) Finally, SPREAD THE WORD! The more people who know, the better.
Thanks for your continued support!!
Bike Saviours will be closed during the following regular shop hours for some much needed volunteer r&r this holiday season:
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We will be open all other regular shop hours not listed from now until the January 1st.
The board members here at Bike Saviours are happy to announce a brand new position at the shop. We are looking for a shop liaison to fulfill the following tasks in our shop on a regular basis:
-curate the community toolshare (tools, kits, and fixtures)
-coordinate part and tool orders
-perform inventory/stock counts
-coordinate & schedule build days
-maintain the shop’s physical layout and organization
-maintain computer and register systems and electronic portals
-audit project bike rack periodically
-process incoming and outgoing shipments
-facilitate acquiring and installing capital expansions, as they are budgeted by the board
-recycle scrap materials periodically
-liquidate surplus tooling/furnishings/materials as approved by the board
can assume daytime phone-tree duty
-maintain rideshare fleet
The position includes, but is not limited to, those tasks.
If you are interested in doing this at Bike Saviours, please prepare a short (about 5 minute) pitch to present at our January meeting for the board to consider. The pitch should include things like your qualifications, ideas for the shop and the liaison position specifically and any other information you think may be pertinent. The meeting will take place at the shop at 6:30 p.m. on January 13th.
Just a quick reminder, we will be closed Thursday, November 22nd for the Thanksgiving holiday.
