Shop Local // Oklahoma Recumbent Trikes & Bikes
Meet Bob Massengale, he has been a local business owner in Lexington Oklahoma for over 40 years. He started with Massengale’s Furniture & Appliance Store and after a couple decades he started Oklahoma Recumbent Trikes & Bikes, where he has been in business for over 10 years. He is one of the few that sell the recumbent trikes and bikes in the state, with customers all over the south. We asked Bob what his largest struggle is when owning your own company, he said actually getting people in your store. I find this very common with local business owners. Why do people so quickly trust Amazon or large chain stores instead of the person down the street from them who has invested their life into their business? We also asked Bob what he loves about his business, he said seeing people get healthy. When you shop local you get more then a product, but a friend who is going to go the extra mile to ensure you have been taken care of.
Who is tired of getting a robot when something goes wrong with your product. Stop shopping online and start focusing on the businesses in your city. Shopping local brings tax dollars into your city so roads, parks, fireman, police officers and growth can happen.
