The 50 Best Running Stores in America have been announced by Running Insight magazine. We are excited to share that over 60% of them use the Promoboxx marketing platform to easily promote content for the footwear brands whose products they sell – and drive local sales while creating a community of runners!
How Were the Best Running Stores Selected?
According to Running Insight, specialty running stores go through a four-step process before achieving the honor of being one of the 50 Best Running Stores in America.
- The store is nominated by their customers.
- The nominated store applies – sharing information on their community involvement, the brands they carry, their outstanding employees, and what makes them unique.
- A select number of nominees are secretly visited by a committee from the Franklin Media Group, the top merchandising company in sports retail, focusing on 20 categories of excellence.
- Finally, the stores are anonymously rated by vendors based on how they work as a partner.
This rigorous process makes sure that the absolute best running stores make this list!
