J&P Cycles Announces Closure of Anamosa Store

The store has supported riders in the community for over four decades.

J&P Cycles has announced the closure of its store in Anamosa, Iowa. J&P Cycles, now owned by retailer Comoto, was founded in Anamosa by John & Jill Parham in 1979. 

J&P Cycles experienced significant growth and expansion throughout its history and in 2020 was acquired by the Philadelphia-based Comoto Family of Brands, which also operates RevZilla, Cycle Gear, Common Tread and REVER. The J&P Cycles brand continues to flourish under Comoto’s guidance, currently operating retail stores in Florida, Arizona, Tennessee, Michigan and South Dakota, along with a significant presence at motorcycle rallies around the U.S.

Zach Parham, son of the founders, currently serves Comoto as the president and chief financial and operating officer. Commenting on the closure, Parham expressed, “While it’s incredibly hard to close the door on this chapter in a place as special as Anamosa, we look forward to continuing to serve riders and grow the J&P Cycles business. Anamosa was an integral part of our company’s success, and we will forever be grateful to this community.”

The six dedicated team members impacted by this closure will receive comprehensive support, including severance packages, outplacement services and opportunities to be considered for other roles within the company.

“We have deep appreciation for the loyalty and support we’ve received from the people of Anamosa and want to assure riders that this decision does not diminish the commitment to serving the motorcycle community through our retail stores and online network,” continued Parham. 

The Anamosa store will remain open through Dec. 31, 2023.
