New fitness apparel, training store to open in fall | Business
A new fitness shoe and apparel store is scheduled to open in Sun Prairie this fall.
Fleet Feet Sports Madison owners Matt & Jessica Anderson announced in June that they would open a second store in the Shoppes at Prairie Lakes shopping center at 2828 Prairie Lakes Drive.
The Andersons said the new Fleet Feet should open in September. Fleet Feet offers sporting goods like apparel, athletic shoes and training.
"With this expansion, Fleet Feet Sports will be accessible to even more people in the greater Madison area so we can share our passion for serving customers and encouraging the fitness lifestyle," the Andersons said in a news release.
According to the website, the group also hosts free group runs in the Madison area. The store organizes a weekly run on Wednesdays beginning at the 8440 Old Sauk Road location at 5:45 p.m. for a two-to-five mile group run or walk. The store said all paces are welcome to join. A weekly "pub run" is also held on Thursdays. Runners start at or near a local bar for a five-mile run followed by food, drinks and socializing, according to the company website. The runs begin at 6 p.m. and are listed about a month in advance.
The Andersons said they've owned and run the Fleet Feet store at 8440 Old Sauk Road since 2005. Fleet Feet Sports Madison has been recognized multiple years as a Gold Medalist in Madison Magazine’s Best of Madison.
Fleet Feet is a nationwide running-specialty franchise with more than 115 stores in 30 states, according to the corporate website.
