This very large addition to Taichung is the first of a chain of oversized outdoor recreation stores that the Giant Bicycle Company hopes to build. With about 500 pings of indoor space, this attractive warehouse store is modeled after North American outlets like REI and has imported recreational clothing like Gore-Tex jackets, hiking and climbing equipment, backpacks, footwear including brands like Merrell, and--naturally--a lot of bicycles and bicycle-related equipment. There is also a bicycle repair and maintenance shop, equipped with professional personnel (including English-speaking people). Other regular events open to the public include classes and seminars on recreational topics and it is hoped, weekly flea markets (on Fridays from 6-10 p.m.) for people to buy, sell and exchange recreational gear. Just as neat are the rock-climbing walls, including the biggest wall on the island (a tall, convoluted mass outside the building), an indoor wall for kids and beginners and a rappelling wall with built-in cracks for enthusiasts to work on. Almost as big as the store is the brightly-lit, multi-level Brunch Caffe Italiano coffee house attached to the store. This place, open from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., serves up plenty of coffees, sandwiches and other similar items. The Together store has already soft-opened and will have its grand opening on June 8. To get there, head south on Wenhsin South Road and its on the right, between Wuchuan West and Nantun roads.
