Running Insight Magazine recently released its annual list of the top 50 specialty running stores in the U.S. We congratulate these retailers and are proud to say that over 40% of them are using Promoboxx to simplify their digital marketing efforts.

With their impact on local communities, expert product knowledge, and superior service, specialty retailers are the best way to engage and influence consumers, all while exposing brands in a premium way. This is why leading footwear brands rely on their specialty retail network to meaningfully connect with dedicated runners.

Understanding the importance of investing in the success of these specialty retailers, brands like Mizuno (our work together recently highlighted) and New Balance partner with Promoboxx. Through the Promoboxx marketing platform, they provide their specialty retailers with a simple, effective digital marketing solution that creates connection and alignment from the brand level down.

How the Stores Were Selected

According to Running Insight, the stores were chosen based heavily on consumer feedback and nominations. Nominated stores were then asked to submit a survey and provide details about their stores and their community involvement. This combined information was used to create the list of the 50 best specialty running stores in the U.S.
