Ribbon cutting, After Hours held in Roanoke

Posted: Friday, March 24, 2017

A ribbon cutting was held at the new location of Spokesmen Cycling in downtown Roanoke. The event was part of a Chamber of Commerce After Hours that began at 4 p.m. and continued through 6 p.m. at several locations in downtown Roanoke. The After Hours included Spokesmen Cycling, 247 N. Main Street; Clear Elevation, 314 N. Main Street, Suite 112; IBA-Design Inc., 314 N. Main Street, Suite 140 and Board & Brush, 160 S. High Street.

Spokesmen Cycling is owned by Larry and Rise Buzzard and is a full service bicycle shop. Buzzard says the business will evolve with the new market as he caters to customers in southwest Allen County, General Motors employees and continues to service the Huntington County area. Already he has seen a different customer base patronizing the store.

Businesses involved in the After Hours presented their businesses to those in attendance and served a nice array of beverages and refreshments.
