As of Monday, 4/6/20, Thumm's continues to be open during the COVID-19 pandemic, as bike shops are still listed as an essential business by the Ohio Dept. of Health.
Our hours are temporarily reduced to 9:30-5:00 Tuesday - Friday, 9:30-3:00 Saturday.
In working to adhere to the social distancing requirements, we will be limiting the number of people allowed in our building to 1-2 customers/families at a time.
Please ring our doorbell when you arrive. We will conduct as much business as possible, i.e. repair check-in, outside.
We are committed to your health and safety and that of our employees and this decision to remain open is subject to change. Thank you for your patience during this time.

August F. Thumm's mother, discouraged her son was working as a plumber for less than three cents an hour, recommended he consider a different line of work - maybe something with mechanical devices because of his fondness for tinkering and skill with his hands.
Augie Thumm, August's grandson, said his granddad always had an affinity for motorcycles and bicycles, and taking his mother's advice, August F. Thumm went into business with his brother, Karl, selling Harley-Davidson motorcycles, bicycles and tires.
