ALD rides into retail with McConvey Cycles fit-out deal
INTERIOR fit out company ALD has bagged a contract worth more than £100,000 to completely redesign and refit McConvey Cycles in Belfast.
It represents growth in the retail market for ALD, which makes up approximately 50 per cent of the work for the locally owned, family-run business.
The 30 year-old company, which employs 21 staff at a 25,000 sq ft complex on Prince Regent Road, houses offices, storage, showroom and workshops as well as sister business Equipashop, a retail equipment specialist brand.
The redesign at McConvey Cycles on the Ormeau Road has allowed the 20 year-old business to reposition itself as one of the leading bike and accessories retailers in Ireland.
Its owner Eamon McConvey said: “I'm absolutely delighted with the level of service and expertise Alan and his team has delivered – the end design and fit-out is out of this world and really gives us a competitive edge to rival any bike store in Ireland and indeed the UK.
“Not only can customers browse over 100 bikes that we have in the store, complete with all of the accessories, but they can also get their actual size fitted to their own bike. This gives them the edge on competitiveness, improves technique and reduces the likelihood of injury."
Alan Lewis, director of ALD Fit Out, added: "We have worked closely with Eamon right through from the initial design concept to final handover.
“We completed the whole job - including all the electrical work and signage as well as floors, stairs, and ceilings - in one calendar month."
