Des gens tellement sympathiques et chaleureux! Ce n'est plus des commerçants mais des amis. Excellent et judicieux choix de vélos et d'équipements pour le vélo.
Soon, Pierre-Marie found himself on the shop floor taking care of sales, before moving into purchasing and then managing the store's products and services. One day, Étienne Roy-Corbeil, one of the co-owners, offered him the chance to buy into the company. Fascinated by, and passionate about entrepreneurship and local companies in particular, Pierre-Marie didn't hesitate for a second and was happy to become the co-owner of a company that seemed to fit him perfectly. "I've always travelled by bike, every day since I can remember, so I feel like I belong here," he says.
Dumoulin Bicyclettes specializes in the sale of new bicycles. "Our aim is to get as many people on bikes as possible every day to ease their commute," says the co-owner. The shop sells city bikes, especially foldable ones, cargo bikes and electric models. None of the bikes are designed purely for recreational use. The models are selected for their durability for frequent travel. "My personal favourite is the Brompton," Pierre-Marie says. "It's a comfortable folding bicycle and an amazing solution for everyday use!"
Owning a bike means keeping it in good shape. Dumoulin Bicyclettes provides mechanical maintenance services for all kinds of bikes. "We make every effort to maintain our repair shop's excellent reputation. It's a major asset both for us and for our customers," says Pierre-Marie proudly. The workshop does repairs, standard adjustments and custom adjustments, such as preparation for the winter, a season with which Montrealers are very familiar.
Pierre-Marie has a clear philosophy when it comes to selling accessories. "We want it to be simple, for people in their everyday lives; when you're confident in your bike and accessories, you get the most pleasure out of cycling."
His goal isn't to line the walls of the store, but rather to choose each item for its usefulness and quality. "We make a difference every day. We've got a lovely customer base of people who enjoy coming to see us... that gives us a lot of motivation."" >
