Run For Your Life to host grand opening of new store Saturday

Run For Your Life will kick off the opening of its new Kings Drive location in Midtown Saturday.

The local retailer said in January it’ll move operations from its Dilworth store on Park Road to the new Midtown location. Run For Your Life, which sells running gear and shoes, operates two other stores, in the University City area and in Piper Glen.

The company will offer special deals during the grand opening event, which runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the new location at 901 S. Kings Drive. Deals include a free gift with all purchases, a free pair of Feetures socks to the first 150 customers, 10 percent off all apparel and shoes, samples, raffles and gifts from vendors.

The new store in the Kings Court Shopping Center is right across from the Little Sugar Creek Greenway, a popular spot for runners, walkers and bikers. Other tenants of the shopping center include the Melting Pot and Great Harvest Bread Co.

“It’s great looking out the window and watching a bunch of runners run by,” the company’s owner, Tim Rhodes, told the Observer in January.
