For those of you who run, you’ll be excited to hear that the chain Fleet Feet is coming to Canton. This location at 1431 Riverstone Parkway, Suite 100, joins the other 184 retail stores across the U.S., that includes nine stores in Georgia. If you aren’t familiar with the store or concept, here’s a quick recap:
- Fleet Feet offers a premium in-store shopping experience, and an awesome inventory of the best and most innovative products available.
- Fleet Feet Canton will have a dynamic outfitting process called “Fit ID” that includes a 3D virtual model of customers’ feet that will fit them with the ideal shoes and gear to help reach their fitness goals.
- You don’t want to run alone! That’s why Fleet Feet Canton will offer group runs and training programs so you can train with other as a community.
I had a chance to catch up with the owners Art and Denise Picus, and they are very excited to bring their passion about running to the community with Fleet Feet.
They both share a passion for running and multisports, and are thankful for the people and relationships they’ve developed along the way. Those experiences have inspired them to serve, engage and give back to others and their community through running, social experiences, and a healthy active life.
“We want to share our passion by inspiring the runner, walker, or for those who just want to simply be comfortable in their day- to-day lives. Whether it’s hosting group runs, fundraising for local charities, helping youth based initiatives or community events, Fleet Feet Canton wants to inspire the runner in everyone,” said franchise owner Art Picus.
“When you look across metro Atlanta, the Northwest and Cherokee county, this type of retailer has not been available to promote a healthy, active lifestyle through walking and running activities. To get this kind of support, you had to travel to other parts of Atlanta. Local communities will be at the heart of Fleet Feet Canton,” said Denise.
The store is currently in the buildout phase with a target opening in mid to end of September. You can follow them on Facebook for updates.
