Here's another one that popped up recently.
It's a Colson built Delmar bicycle for the Simmons Hardware Company, located on Delmar Blvd in St. Louis, Missouri.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact location of the old store, but these pictures give an idea of what the area looks like.

Steve's Bicycle and Sports, Rocky Mount, NC from a 1999 Trek Multi Track hybrid.

Location is now a carpet store.

And Steve apparently gained a partner named "Al" and relocated to Wilson, NC as they are now known as, "Steve & Al's Bicycles & Sports".

Finally snapped a photo of a Middle Ring Cycles sticker which was located in our small NC city. Only in business for about two years, they have been closed for several years now. I wrenched part time at their two different locations.

Yeah, I was surprised by all the open space when I googled downtown St. Louis.
A friend who has family there, said, that's because they demolished all of the old decrepit buildings that didn't have any historical significance, and were becoming a blighted nuisance.
Now, there's grass and wild flowers.
Perfect!
Just like it was before. Lol!

From Atlanta a couple years ago. It was on a 54 Monark I had for a couple weeks. Not much left of it to see.

Yelp review on the closed Buddy's Schwinn Bicycles, Fresh Meadows, NY.

Closed in 2010 after 50 years in business - owner would have fit right in here on the CABE....

...Buddy could be a bit cranky at times (especially when kids were running helter-skelter around the place, e.g. there's a big sign in the window: "No Skateboards!") but the service and skills were excellent. A NYC institution that will be missed.

I like 'GENE'S' Phone number ….
2a.
'Bills Bike and Puck' offers to help return a 'Misplaced' bike
3a.
Buff Linclau's 'Woods' bike shop became Pointe Cyclery in Grosse Pointe which morphed into todays American Cycle group of stores
4a.
Reliable bike shop was Legendary in Detroit post WW2 . huge Schwinn dealer
5a.
Village cyclery became the MGM group of bike stores (11 total) and undercut EVERYONE -including me- and later went thru a
massive bankruptcy screwing all his partners .
I worked there in the mid 70's.

The sticker on a Ross Compact of about 1980 is from Sam's in Elmwood Park, NJ. Sam's is still there. This stretch of New Jersey State Highway 4 is also called Broadway. Info from the website is shown below. Before 1973, Elmwood Park was East Paterson (note the matching initials), but the inhabitants did not want to be associated with Paterson any longer, so they changed the name of the town. I live about 10 miles from Sam's, but have never visited. One day I should stop in.
