J & R Cycle & Ski celebrated its recent move to Villa Park with a ribbon cutting April 15th.
Bob Pecora, owner of J & R Cycle & Ski in Villa Park says he hasn't worked a day in his life. Considering he started at the bicycle store, which he now owns, when he was 16, the statement is a testament to his love for the job.
While J & R has been in business for 40 years, the store is new to Villa Park. Its new location at 240 W. St. Charles Road has been completely renovated and provides J & R with a larger space for its growing business than its previous location in Lombard. Bob also said St. Charles Road provides great visibility.
The store sells bikes for any style of rider from the novice all the way to professional and maintains a friendly atmosphere as a family-owned and operated business. All riders can find everything from the latest bikes on the market to any parts or accessories they may need. J & R also invites bicyclists to bring their bikes in for a free check-up – a great idea at the beginning of the season. As a full-service shop, J & R can repair bikes of all styles, from vintage to professional. In addition to bicycles and biking gear, J & R also carries cross country skis for sale
or to rent. J & R Cycle & Ski is located at 240 W. St. Charles Road in Villa Park.
