SAN MARINO, California – The Cub House Bike & Plant Shop jokingly bills itself as “America’s favorite bike and plant shop,” as it may well be the only one in existence. The shopkeepers took over the location of a friend’s nursery in San Marino, California and decided to continue the greenhouse next to their bike shop.
“People keep coming in and saying, ‘Is this a restaurant?’ Is it a bike shop? is it a bar What’s up?’ And often we hear really loud music, or even mariachi music, and they’re like, “What’s going on?” said Carla Alcibar, co-owner of The Cub House Bike & plant shop. “We just love it when people come in, have no idea what it is, and we can tell them our story.
In addition to selling plants and bikes, The Cub House also builds community by hosting bike rides and encouraging locals to hang out and socialize.
“I think they’re more like, ‘Yeah, just come and hang out.’ We also sell stuff and if you want to buy something that’s cool,” said customer Riley Cooper.
