bicycle stores

Today, I found out that my favorite bicycle store went out of business. I bought all my bicycle stuff from them and bought my niece and nephew their bicycles from them too. I always brought my bicycle there for tune ups and repairs.

So since I can no longer shop there, what is the best way to find a good and reliable bicycle shop?

Also, we do have a forum for 'Regional Discussions'. I don't know how active it is, but there's no charge for asking.
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

I love Google Maps, but in my area (East side of Atlanta,) many of the shops it brings up aren't there, and only one of the ones I know about are. Baffling.

Ask other cyclists is all I know, but I'm with you on the frustration.
