At long last, after months of having poster bannering covering the window glass around the south west corner of Murano Condos at Bay and Grenville, the newest Running Room store has opened up in the Bay and College neighbourhood!
Months of renovations and customizations allowed the store to open on March 20th to reveal new running gear, accessories and training products. Perhaps most exciting of all, and of the biggest benefit to the neighbourhood is the running club programs they offer that gather neighbours together to run with each other. This helps with connecting people who would not normally get to meet because of the anonymity that sometimes develops in a community full of tall condo towers.
Check out the programs they offer here on their main website under the heading “Training Programs”: http://www.runningroom.com/ Most will not be starting for a couple more months, but if by chance you’re dying to do the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon this October, there is a training program for it starting in June. (Of course, previous experience running is required for this program.)
On a personal note, I do hope the store does well as I’m keen to see the Bay Street Condo Corridor come out of the slump of “brand name” coffee shops and dry cleaners that have littered our neighbourhood. Variety is the spice of life, and what better way to shake up the retail mix of a neighbourhood than by getting some quality retail stores into the area.
Please support our new neighbourhood store and check them out!
