The Runner’s Edge in Wilmette has been a successful family-owned running store since 1992, and to celebrate its history, the 24-year-old company is moving to one of the oldest shopping centers in the United States.
At the end of October, consumers can find all of their favorite running and biking necessities at the new Wilmette location of The Runner’s Edge in Plazo Del Lago, located at 1515 Sheridan Road. A grand opening weekend will take place in the new store in early November, with raffle prize giveaways and various running activities.
“It’s an exciting move for us to a great, well know location in the Northshore where many of our customers already run and bike by all year long,” Bob Klein, who owns The Runner’s Edge with his partner Nancy Schultz, says in a press release.
“Plus, we have Higher Gear Bike shop in the center that allows their customers and our customers the chance to make one stop for running, swimming, cycling and multi-sport gear.”
The Runner’s Edge can also be found in Libertyville and Chicago.
