The apparent death of the brick and mortar store is well documented. And, with pretty good reason. At least once per week, we see another big name store closing up shop. Toys R Us. Payless Shoe Source. Gymboree. These are just a few of those that hop right out at me without even looking anything up! And I know there are tons more.
However, not all brick and mortar stores are content to sit back and let online businesses take them away. I am pleased to mention one such experience.
New Running Shoes
I run about 10 miles per week. Lately, I’ve noticed that my shoes have started to feel a bit worn. They have around 500 miles, which is honestly around the top end for running shoes. My shoes are pretty sturdy, so that is actually about right.
I had bought my last pair at a local store called Hanson’s Running Shop. They specialize in shoes and gear for runners. I had a great experience and they found me a pair of shoes that offered extra support. This is important to me given that I’m prone to plantar fasciitis.
