Time to say farewell...

It's hard to imagine bikes@vienna without John Brunow, who started this shop over 12 years ago, but that day is approaching quickly. John and his wife Ces decided earlier this year to head back to Iowa to be closer to family. They expect to depart sometime after Thanksgiving, so time is growing short to bid them farewell. We're making plans to give them both a sendoff during the Vienna Holiday Stroll on Monday, November 29th, 6 to 9 pm., so please come by the shop during that time to wish them well. John and Ces will both be sorely missed, both here at the shop and in the greater community, so let's show them our appreciation by turning out for this.

The shop will carry on, with me, Tim Fricker, head mechanic, taking over ownership of the business as John leaves. I look forward to continuing and building on the many positive relationships we've had with our customers and the community over the years.

Oh, and yes, Java is Iowa-bound as well. The shop won't be the same without her, either. I tried to negotiate that, but no such luck.
