Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke has been recognized by Competitor magazine and Running Insight trade magazine as one of The 50 Best Running Stores in America for 2013.
Every year, Competitor magazine and Running Insight trade magazine identify the “50 Best Running Stores in America.” It all started in July with runners nominating their favorite stores through www.competitor.com. Those stores are put through a rigorous evaluation process, which includes mystery shopping to assess customer service, credit ratings from vendors and assessments about local programs and community commitment.
The stores that rank among the 50 Best Running Stores in America are the ones that offer exemplary customer service, training programs and group runs. The stores provide knowledge and insights about the latest trends, the newest gear, proper running form and information about local races and trails. Additionally, stores can answer endless questions about racing, training and injury prevention. In other words, it’s a shop that goes out of its way to do everything for local runners, no matter what age, experience or ability.
Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke is locally-owned and operated by Blaine and Robin Lewis. The store opened in 2003 and was known as the “local running store.” That reputation quickly grew and the store has become known as the store for anyone wanting to live a healthy, active lifestyle; whether that means running, walking, or simply finding products to make a person feel better in their everyday life.
Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke is known in the community as the place to go to be “fitted” in quality footwear. Commitment and dedication to providing healthy solutions to customers is an important daily goal whether someone gets fitted for a pair of shoes, is provided fitness opportunities through the numerous training programs offered by Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke, or is provided advice and guidance about their fitness goals and activities.
