Small Shop Cycles & Service exists to be an exceptional independent community bike shop. Chris Willard, a Bronzeville resident and Kenwood Academy alum, opened the business in 2016 with a decade of experience in bikes and youth education, two disciplines that require both passion and patience. Chris is dedicated to making Small Shop a positive and welcoming environment for customers and staff.
Small Shop would not be possible without the dedicated staff: Carlos Cortes, Dantrell Johnson, Germin Sims, and help from Joe, Maxwell & Maalik.
Thanks for the love and support from family, friends, co-workers, youth, and the South Side----particularly the Bronzeville, Oakland, Hyde Park, and Kenwood community. Thanks for putting us to work!
