ROYAL OAK, Mich. - Online retailer Biker Gift Shop is celebrating its first anniversary selling rider gifts, clothing and accessories.
"When I started the store, there were tons of websites selling biker jackets, helmets and motorcycle parts, but not many with a good selection of biker gifts and smaller accessories," owner Libby Black told Royal Oak Patch. "I saw an opening and jumped at it."
Black is a second-generation rider and retailer. She decided in 2010 that she wanted to create an online store for biker gifts and started working on the venture in 2011.
"Making this store a reality had been a dream of mine for about two years before I really got started working on it. Now that we're actually making a profit, it's all a little surreal," she said.
The store ships anywhere in the United States and is hoping to expand to Canada in the next year or two.
