Locally: Your favorite online shopping companion

Locally: Your favorite online shopping companion

For most of us, shopping online has become second nature. However, waiting for your coveted packages to arrive is a leading cause of boredom. At Electra, were all about maximizing the fun and eliminating boredom. You can now skip it all and get your Electra needs satisfied quicker than ever when shopping at your local bike shop through electrabike.com! Perfect timing for you as summer is around the corner and you don’t want to miss out on any of the fun.  

This is all possible thanks to a little tool called Locally. The name speaks for itself… because it allows you to shop your local Electra dealer before even setting foot in their store. Here’s how it works. First things first, head over to electrabike.com. Next up, select Bike Shop from the menu. This page is where the magic happens. Depending on your browser settings, it will automatically identify your location and outline a list of local Electra dealers in your area. From there, select the shop that makes most sense for you and let the fun really begin. Easily browse a live inventory of everything Electra that your dealer has in stock. If you happen to be casual browsing the site and find something you like, you can also use Locally on the individual product pages. Baskets, bells, bikes… if your local dealer has it, you can shop it! 

When you’ve nailed down everything from your hopes and dreams, there are two ways to get it: buy online and pick up in store or reserve online and pay in store. Buying online is arguably the simplest method, once you pay, just swing by the shop on your way home from your morning coffee, errands, or supper party. Bottom line, your order will be waiting for you. When you reserve an order, the products you selected will be on hold for 24 hours. This will give you plenty of time to get over there and see it in person before pulling the trigger. Although, we’re pretty sure it’ll be love at first sight. 

As they say, strangers are only friends that you haven’t met yet. By shopping with Locally, you are not only getting your Electra goodies quicker, but you are building a lasting relationship with your local bike shop. Knowing that your order will be waiting for you at your Electra dealer has just made those late-night shopping sprees that much better. Now pour yourself a glass of wine or a nice cold beer and curl up on the couch; we’re going shopping!
