Fire at Cycle King Bury St Edmunds store

30 September 2017 08:27:55 BST

This page will continue to be updated to provide our customers with news about the fire, reconstruction and reopening of our store in Bury St Edmunds on a regular basis. You can see announcements as they are made below. Thank you for your interest and support.

Update - 5th March 2018: Demolition work underway at the Cycle King store on Angel Hill that was destroyed in a fire late last year. Work began on Monday 12th February, and aims to pave the way for a new Cycle King store as well as 3 residential flats.

Darren Hunt, Group Retail Director, comments, "We are looking forward to getting the building work underway and returning to the town centre. Our temporary store on Chamberlayne Road was up and running within three weeks of the fire thanks to the hard work of our staff and the local Council. We have hundreds of bikes there ready to choose from and ride away for all the family. We're keen to be back in our town centre location as that is where our heart lies. The Council and Heritage Group have been very supportive of our plans for the rebuild."

Planning permission has been requested to construct the new building, but this is currently awaiting a final decision. Following the demolition and finalisation of planning permission, construction will begin.

More details regarding the new building will be released once the planning process has been finalised. This blog post will be updated with news when further developments occur.

Update - 9th January 2018: All the team at Cycle King are very keen to get back into our Angel Hill premises as soon as ever possible. We are currently working closely with the local authorities on how best to move forward with the rebuilding. Thank you to everyone who has and is providing such great support to us.

Update - 25th October, 2:30pm: We are open! Our new temporary home is 14 Chamberlayne Road, that's between Homebase and Matalan on the outskirts of the town. There's plenty of free parking and hundreds of bikes ready to choose, buy and ride away today. In celebration we have some great offers on in store, exclusive to Bury St Edmunds, so don't miss out, come now!  Repairs and servicing are all available in-store too, from brake adjustments and puncture repairs while you wait to complete revamps and servicing, we're open!




Update - 18th October, 11am: A temporary home has been found for Cycle King in Bury St. Edmunds on Chamberlayne Road, Bury St. Edmunds between Homebase and Matalan. We'll be open there at the end of the month in good time for Christmas with hundreds of bikes on display ready to ride away immediately.

Update for Bury St. Edmunds - Friday 6th October, 11am: The building has now been cleared and continuing recovery efforts are underway. We have found what we hope to be our temporary location and will update this blog and all social channels once we have more information on this. At this time, we'd like to thank the Bury community for all of it's support. 

Update for Bury St. Edmunds - Saturday 30th September, 1pm: An assessment of the building is underway at the site of our store in Bury St Edmunds following last night's fire. The structure is being made safe and secure. We are working closely with the police, fire service and local council to minimise disruption to residents and the public.

We will be contacting all of our customers by phone or email as quickly as possible to discuss their orders and ensure they get their bikes as soon as possible. Our Colchester store is taking all income calls and is able to deal with their enquiries and orders. The telephone number for the Colchester store is (01206) 867756.

Breaking news - Friday 29th September, 10pm: "Everyone here at Cycle King are both shocked and saddened to report that a fire broke out on Friday evening at our Bury St.Edmunds store. Most importantly, we can confirm that no-one has been injured and we would like to thank the police and fire services for their amazing response. Customers can contact both our Cambridge and Colchester stores where our staff will be able to assist them while we make plans to reopen in Bury as soon as possible.” comments Darren Hunt, the Group Retail Managing Director of Cycle King.
