In speaking with one of the owners, Ilene Marcos, at “Bicycle World” located at 7 E. Main Street in Mt. Kisco, NY, she said she promotes people for their skills and hard work, not whether or not they have a college degree. In fact, their present manager started part-time as a high school sophmore and worked his way up the ladder in a job without college. Obviously they are very happy with his performance!
