Now that the Buffalo Scooter Company has opened downtown (see original post), visitors can stop in and see the beautiful showroom while browsing merchandise ranging from t-shirts to Timbuk2 Messenger Bags to pint glasses and coffee mugs. To tell you the truth, this is one of the nicest looking gift shops around, mainly because the refurbished historic interior with high ceilings, brick walls and attractive merchandise displays.
Owner Jeff Russo tells me that while many of the customers are stopping in to see the scooters, others have come to pick up a pair of shades or a pair of riding gloves. “We have an interactive touch screen too,” he pointed out. “This is where customers can come and custom order their scooters. We do stock a lot of the hardware add-ons right here… performance pipes and topcases as well as HCI and Scorpion helmets and Corazzo Jackets.” The Buffalo Scooter Company is a welcome addition to Oak Street and downtown Buffalo. As much as I had originally thought that the company was going to be a destination for scooter riders, I now see that the clientele includes a wider range of shoppers… and that’s always welcome news for the city.
