Run On! Now open in Southlake

Today, Run On!, a specialty running store based in Dallas, announced that its sixth store has officially opened in Southlake. This location is the first of a six-store expansion, brought on by the recent acquisition of the company to Denver-based Running Specialty Group. The Southlake store is located at 2175 E. Southlake Blvd, Suite 170, Southlake, Texas, 76092.

“We are excited to start new growth within the Run On! family of stores,” said Bob Wallace, president and founder of Run On!. “Run On! believes in being part of the communities where we have stores, and by opening this new location in Southlake, we are confident we will reach new customers but also provide convenience to our existing customers who live in the area.”

In early October 2012, Run On! entered into an agreement with Running Specialty Group, a joint venture between The Finish Line Inc. (Nasdaq: FINL) and Gart Capital Partners, to sell the existing five stores, but to also grow the business by six stores in the next 18 months.

Bob Wallace bought Phidippides, an existing running store, in March 1995 and renamed it Run On!. Over the past 17 years, Wallace and his wife, Rebecca, have expanded to five area locations including the original Mockingbird store, Richardson, McKinney, Coppell and the newest location at Preston/Forest that recently celebrated its one year anniversary. The Wallaces will remain with the company as it grows in the Dallas/Fort Worth market.

Run On! offers a variety of shoe and apparel options, but more specifically, the company is known for its customized shoe-fitting experience. Run On! offers training programs and free weekly social runs at all of its current locations.
