Question Where the heck is Richardson Bike Mart????

I was in Richardson this past weekend on business and I had about 4 hours to kill. I wanted to visit Richardson Bike Mart. I mapquested it and took the map that it gave me and followed it. Mapquest was wrong. I pulled over and called the store. The person asked where I was and then gave me directions from there. I followed them, I still couldn't find it. I pulled over again and asked directions from someone else. They told me something completly different! Needless to say I wasted 4 hours trying to find a bike shop and ended up just getting frustrated and went back to my hotel. I was staying at the Holday Inn Select on I-75/Crosstown Expressway and Collins/Campbell rd. I would like to know where it is because I will be back there in a few weeks and I plan on attempting to find it again.

Mike

SE corner of Coit and Campbell. It's huge (i.e. former supermarket).

They have three locations, which may have caused some of your pain....

oh, and ditch MapQuest. Google Maps is your friend. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...8667&z=15&om=1

take Campbell west for about 3 miles, it will be on your left.
It will be at the corner of Coit and Campbell.

^ ^ what they said. It's easy to miss if you're looking for a typical small shop, which RBM is anything but. It sits back from the road a bit in the main strip mall, near the end of the row. There's a starbucks, Qdoba, Nikki's Cafe out in front of it. And a Tom Thumb directly across the road. Next time you're heading up this direction give one of us locals a shout ahead of time. I live within a mile of RBM.

If you get close enough, you will be caught in the tractor beam. None have escaped the evil empire. Last time, they forced me to buy another bike against my will using Sith mind power techniques.
