I am trying to decide what color to paint the interior of my bicycle shop. Does color have any effect on retail sales?

A color would not influence me to buy, unless it was my favorite color :)

The greatest colors in all bicycling are:
Blue-Post OFfice Team
Yellow- The greatest color in bicycle history. The Jersey.

If it were me, I'd paint at least one whole wall a good shade of red. Red is an action color and a single red wall will contrast well with many other colors you may choose. Look at your space and think which wall would be the best for solid red, with a minimal amount of stuff (ideally none) hanging on the red wall. The shade of red depends on your situation. Start with a relatively bright medium red and go from there.
hope this helps,

Pedal over to the
link just to the right of your question. Try using the keyword "color" and you'll find a few dozen Q&A threads that have already covered this marathon topic.
Many of the answers there include links to useful color websites.
I hope you're paying more attention to your store's layout than its color scheme, however!
