Fleet Feet Sports to Open Second Location in Spokane Valley
July 21, 2014 – Wade and Julie Pannell, co-owners of Fleet Feet Sports Spokane (www.fleetfeetspokane.com), announced today that they will open a second store at 13910 East Indiana Avenue, Suite D, Spokane Valley, WA 99216, in early September 2014. Fleet Feet Sports, established in Spokane in 2012, specializes in helping all people reach their health and fitness goals.
Fleet Feet Spokane’s current location at 1303 North Washington Street was the most successful store that the franchise system opened in 2012 and remains the fastest growing store in the organization. Fleet Feet works with customers one on one to fit them in the right footwear, apparel, sports bras and accessories for a more active lifestyle. In addition to its unmatched customer service, Fleet Feet Spokane trains over 500 people through its year round, nationally-recognized training programs. These programs are for walkers and runners of all ages and abilities – from those who are currently non-active to those preparing for a marathon.
“As a locally-owned and operated business with deep roots in this community, we want to be accessible to more people in the greater Spokane area and help more people become healthier and more active,” said Wade Pannell. “Opening a second location in Spokane Valley will allow us to do just that. It will allow us to educate more people through clinics and training programs and create more opportunities for our staff.”
Fleet Feet Spokane currently employs ten well-trained staff members and the expansion will bring an additional five jobs to the Spokane economy.
