The new shop will retail the leading bicycles on the market, Carnes said. Also sold in the new store will be motor scooters, motorbikes and the Autoette electric car used successfully by the handicapped. Three days have been set aside for the Carnes opening and their anniversary - Nov. 13 through the 15th from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. The new location is a half block west of the old store."
