MANCHESTER, N.H. [June 30, 2017] – Local running and walking store Runner’s Alley opens the doors to a shiny new home this Saturday, as its Manchester store location makes the move around the corner to 669 Elm Street. The new location will be open for business at 10:00 am on Saturday, July 1st.


The new Elm Street location will replace Runner’s Alley’s previous home at 36 Hanover Street, where the Manchester location has been since opening in 2001. The new store location will have a formal grand opening celebration from August 10-13.


“We’ve loved our cozy spot on Hanover Street, but are very excited to expand our ability to serve customers at our new location,” said Jeanine Sylvester, general manager. “This new spot will allow us to offer more educational opportunities, fitness classes, and a broader range of product to Manchester and the surrounding communities we’ve supported over the last 16 years.”


Locally owned since 1997, each Runner’s Alley location offers a personalized shoe fitting process catered to the individual needs of each customer. With an expert biomechanical and gait analysis, Runner’s Alley engages customers in an education-oriented approach and encourages them to try before they buy. At the heart of its philosophy is the belief that physical activity is a fundamental element of personal well-being. Runner’s Alley caters to active people of all shapes and sizes, from walker to marathoner and everyone in between.


In the new location, customers will enjoy a larger, more modern shopping space with a broader range of products than were available in the Hanover Street shop. Grand opening festivities in August will include gifts with purchase, raffles, giveaways, product demos, and more.
