Statement from Fleet Feet Sports Chicago regarding the Aug. 26 Old Town fire
Just after 1 p.m. Wednesday, a fire spread through the building adjacent to our Old Town store. We are grateful that both buildings were completely evacuated, and our thoughts go out to those firefighters who were hurt in the line of duty yesterday.
Today, the Old Town location remains closed as we assess the damage. But like a runner sidelined by injury, we are planning our recovery. We will have the store reopened and better than before as soon as possible.
In the meantime, all other Fleet Feet Sports locations are open and ready to provide you with the same fantastic service.
Our Lakeview store is 2.5 miles north along Lincoln Avenue — or a short ride on the CTA Brown Line to the Southport stop.
Our Lincoln Square store at Western and Lawrence is a bit farther up the Brown Line and has the same great selection as Old Town.
Our South Loop store at Roosevelt Road and Clark store has convenient and free parking at the Roosevelt Collection deck and is just a few blocks away from the Red Line’s Roosevelt stop..
Many of you are competing at this weekend’s Transamerica Chicago Triathlon. We will be at the expo with some excellent triathlon gear, wetsuits, nutrition and recovery tools, as well as Transamerica Chicago Triathlon Official Merchandise.
We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community as we recover and rebuild. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 312-587-3338.
