In the spotlight: Two Pines Supply – Best Bike Shop
A young multi-sports store has become the best bike stop in Grand and one of the best sporting goods stores in a county full of recreational opportunities.
Two Pines Supply opened in May of last year and has seen two busy summers selling, servicing and renting just about any piece of outdoor equipment.
“The only thing we really don’t do right now is kayaking because we don’t have space,” owner Chris Olivier said, adding that he hopes to add that as soon as it’s possible.
Ranging from bikes to hiking and camping gear to maps and snacks, the store has a little bit of everything for the outdoor lifestyle.
Olivier and his wife had been looking to settle down in the county, a place Olivier had enjoyed recreating in all his life. The couple started the business after spending time in various parts of the biking industry and realizing that some of their favorite products weren’t available in Grand.
That’s part of what makes Two Pines’ offerings so unique.
“We carry brands that we believe in,” Olivier said. “The brands we carry in the store are what we use in the outdoors.”
Customer service is another important part of the store’s business model. Olivier explained that whether a customer is buying a $10,000 mountain bike or just one snack, he wants them to have the same, excellent experience.
He emphasized that for some recreationists passing through the area, Two Pines might be their only stop. The store wants to make sure that every person passing through walks away happy with the service and with Grand.
“For a lot of these people, we’re the only touch point they have with the county,” Oliver said. “We’re making sure people have a positive experience while they’re here.”
