Ballards Offroad and MXstore Have Joined Forces
For almost 30 years the name Ballard’s has been synonymous with Australian Dirt Bike riding and been a household name for many off road enthusiasts all over the world.
If you are familiar with the name you will be aware that there have been some changes at Ballard’s Offroad this year. We can now reveal an exciting new partnership between the iconic Ballard’s Offroad and Australia’s fastest growing Online Retailer MXstore has formed which will ensure the name Ballard’s will continue well into the future.
This joining of forces offers huge opportunities for both Ballard’s and MXstore. The goal being to hold fast to the quirky and unmistakable Ballard’s characteristics while tipping in some technology to help bring the Ballard’s brand to more Australian people than ever before.
As we go to press the gargantuan task of packing up a business of over 25 years and moving it to MXstore on the Gold Coast is taking place. A dedicated Ballard’s department will exist on the MXstore website and at the MXstore Gold Coast showroom. All of which will be just like the original Ballard's store in Penrith, right down to Glen Bell’s Thumper Nats XR, just a bit more organised!
As to be expected there is a huge amount of work to be done and everyone is working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible and minimizing any delays that might occur with orders. It is going to take a few weeks for the roll-out to be complete, but hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Watch this space as we will be keeping everyone in the loop as we progress, but here’s where things stand right now.
Customers can still call the same Ballard's number to order - 02 4731 1210.
From today Friday 01/04/2016 there will no longer be any over the counter sales at the store in Penrith as all the stock is in the process of being shipped to our new Gold Coast location.
Once Ballard’s is fully operating out of the Gold Coast location you will still be able to speak to a Ballard’s staff member.
For our customers this means Ballard’s will be rolling out more product, all of which will be available online and in-store through MXstore. The Ballard’s brand will continue to grow with an ever increasing product range that Geoff Ballard will personally be sourcing and there is a new Ballard’s catalogue in the works which will contain all of the classic Ballard’s humour we all love which we hope to have out for the end of the year.
Watch this space as reveal more exciting updates as things progress and we appreciate your patience during this transition period.
