Christian Fairly said the shop has a legacy in Amarillo and wants to bring it new life.

“Gene and LaVoyda were our next-door neighbors and we grew up going to Hills Sport Shop, so it was an easy decision when Kirk called,” says Christian Fairly. “Hills is a legacy Amarillo business and we are honored to bring this beloved bicycle shop back to life.”

The Hills Sport Shop states it opened in 1964 and evolved from a lawn mower and bicycle shop to Amarillo’s largest bicycle shop.
