The Star-Ledger print edition reported today that Planet Bike on Rt 18 in East Brunswick received extensive damage from a fire yesterday morning short before 7am. Fortunately it appears that no one was injured in the blaze. Partial coverage can be found at the bottom of this online article.
This is sure to be a blow to the folks at Planet Bike as all bikes shops are getting ready to build up their 2011 inventories at the end of this month. We at WalkBikeJersey wish the folks at Planet Bike the best of luck in getting their shop back in order and hope to report about their recovery in the near future.
