Roadrunner members no longer have to go to northern San Diego for apparel.
The fitness store is set to open its newest location here in the southbay on October 7, at the Otay Ranch Town Center in Chula Vista.
The weekend-long event is kicking off at 4 p.m. with an exclusive VIP shopping event that features healthy snacks and beverages, free fitness apparel and much more on site.
The first 25 shoppers at the location will reportedly get a goodie bag each grand-opening day with prizes and accessories such as, sunglasses, water bottles, running shoe laces, etc.
The store's Director of Customer Acquisition says this grand-opening displays a monumental milestone for the highly-popular fitness apparel store.
“The opening of our first South Bay store represents an important milestone for our company, allowing us to serve more runners, walkers and fitness enthusiasts right in our own backyard,” said Road Runner Sports Director of Customer Acquisition Sean Peterson. “We are thrilled to expand our local presence and provide the San Diego community access to premium running gear paired with the perfect fitting shoe.”
This is big news for local runners in the southbay area who have been driving all the way to Miramar all this time for their sports apparel.
One of those local runners is Abraham Morales, Southbay native, who feels relieved to finally have a new Roadrunner location within distance in Chula Vista.
"Roadrunners is a great alternative for those who can't drive north of San Diego," said Abraham. "The store has a wide variety of brands and styles of running shoes and the specialists inside the store are very attentive and ready to help you."
The official grand opening will take place from Friday, Oct. 7 through Sunday, Oct. 9, at Otay Ranch Town Center, 2015 Birch Rd Suite #512, Chula Vista, CA 91915.
