Shop Hours Expand Again

15 Dec

See you this weekend!

Updated April 2017

Since October, Sharing Wheels has been open every Saturday. Our Saturday hours are thanks to a grant from the City of Everett. The Community Development Block Grant supports projects serving the low income community.

This spring we added Sunday and evening hours to our schedule as well. Our goal for the expanded hours is to serve more people So please, come use our tools, donate a quality bicycle, buy a refurbished bike, or check out our used parts and accessories.

The city gave us a grant of up to $9,000 through May 31 to reimburse us for staff time to expand our open hours.

Whenever you come in on a weekend, we’ll ask you to do a little paperwork. A count of the number of people served and some basic demographic information are grant requirements. In fact, although the City of Everett gave us the grant, it is actually part of a federal grant program. That means there are some strings – mostly to ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent wisely.

We want that, too. So come use the shop or send a friend who needs our services  – on Saturdays or any time we’re open.

Our new hours are:

  • Wednesday, Thursday, Friday from 1 to 6 p.m. 7 p.m.
  • Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
