Fleet Feet expands in new location
To accommodate its growing popularity, Fleet Feet Sports Carrboro moved to a larger location at 300 E. Main St. on Sept. 29.
“The old space was small, it had a nice homey feel, but it interrupted the flow of our customer base as it grew,” said store manager Nick Krouse.
The store, which opened in 1994 in Carr Mill Mall, has since grown to a 90-store franchise.
The new location, which Krouse said is the flagship, offers 5,100 square feet of space, compared to 2,400 square feet provided by its old Carr Mill Mall location.
Krouse said the decision to move stemmed from a need to accommodate the store’s growing staff and products.
“The new space has better accessibility with store-front parking,” Krouse said.
The store has added a Nike concept shop, which features Nike displays and products.
It also includes an indoor track strip from the shoe company Saucony.
