Black Diamond Bike and Back Country earned the Better Business Bureau’s Business of the Year Torch Award in the Community Involvement category.

“This award is exciting and really quite validating,” said Peter Fisher, who owns the business with his wife Janine. “It is sort of further confirmation that we are on the right track, accomplishing what we set out to achieve when we opened the doors seven years ago.”

The business has remained visible in the community with involvement in fundraisers for the Black Diamond Community Center, various bicycle races in the area and helping out with other community events.

“I think our business has done well by doing good within the community,” Fisher said.

Black Diamond Bike and Back Country is in the Diamond Square complex on the north end of town. The shop can be reached at 360-886-9100 and the Web site is www.blackdiamondbike.org.
