The Athlete's Foot sells quality athletic footwear for the entire family, specializing in running shoes and accessories. We have selected a location in a renovated shopping center anchored by Fresh Market, Bed Bath and Beyond, Blockbuster Video, and four restaurants. The balance of tenants caters primarily to children. The quality of our customer service and the lack of competition in the city will allow us to quickly become the footwear headquarters for the local individual athlete and various teams, leagues and schools. This Athlete's Foot store, while part of a worldwide chain, will be family owned and operated.
