In December, Fleet Feet Old Town will have a new address.
Currently located at 1620 North Wells Street, Fleet Feet Old Town will move to Crilly Court Plaza, at 1796 N. Wells Street. In honor of the flagship relocation, Fleet Feet is hosting a grand opening event.
On Wednesday, Dec. 6, the On the Move Fashion Show will be held at Second City Theater at 7 p.m. New winter running gear from brands Nike, Saucony, Brooks, Mizuno, North Face, New Balance, and more will be sported; three new brands will also be introduced at the show.
Immediately following the show, an after-party celebration will take place at the new Fleet Feet Old Town location.
“We will have food, drink, entertainment, shopping promotions and each attendee will leave with a gift bag full of goodies,” an email from Fleet Feet says.
Fleet Feet Old Town’s history began in 1996 on North Avenue. Since then, it has moved twice to accommodate runner’s needs in the area.
The store has “a continuing effort to gain the space to host seminars, fun runs and special events and best serve the vibrant Chicago running community,” its website says.
