My name is David Jones. I've been in the bike business for over 30 years and started my own shop about 5 years ago. I'm an excellent mechanic and I can manage a store. Unfortunately, I hired two very bad accountants in a row who did not make tax payments that I thought they were making. I have an excellent accountant now and we are cleaning up the mess. I am in Chicago, so this is a very seasonal business and we've had two bad winters and slow springs in a row. If I didn't have these tax fines and penalties to catch up with I would be fine, but I find myself behind the eight ball, so to speak, and need your help.

Greetings!

Thank you to all who have supported DJ’s Bike Doctor during this difficult period. Your assistance and encouragement has been and will always be deeply treasured.

In the meantime and in an effort to bring each of you up to date, DJ’s Bike Doctor is now located at:

1344 East 55th Street
(immediately next door to Parker’s Pets and two blocks west of our previous location).

While the move serves as an additional effort toward relieving the tax issues facing our business, your continued support is still needed and appreciated as we enter the winter season, which is our most difficult time due to a decline in the need for our services.

Again, thank you to all for your support!
