Fleet Feet Cincinnati, the local running retail leader committed to inspiring and empowering the runner in everyone, will open a third location in Spring 2019. Co-owners Frank and Stacey DeJulius say the store will open in West Chester in the Voice of America Centre shopping plaza and employ a full-time staff of four.

“We’re committed to making running as accessible as possible for Cincinnati and the surrounding suburbs, and we recognized there was an opportunity to better support and serve runners in the northern communities,” says Frank DeJulius. “Stacey and I are pumped to bring an unmatched standard of service, commitment, and experience to runners, walkers, and fitness enthusiasts in the West Chester area.” 

When it opens, the 1,300-square-foot store will feature the brand’s exclusive outfitting experience, fit idTM, which includes 3D foot scanning and personalized solution recommendations from the store’s highly-trained outfitters.

The store will also offer premium running gear from popular brands including Brooks, Nike, ASICS, New Balance, and Saucony, as well as Karhu, Fleet Feet’s exclusive in-house running shoe brand that recently launched the first shoe informed by the 3D foot scans of over 100,000 customers, the Ikoni.

Additionally, the store will kick-off Fleet Feet Running Club in the fall of 2019. This Fleet Feet initiative offers training programs for runners of all levels at various distances for road, track, and trail. Frank DeJulius encourages the community to stay up-to-date on grand opening details and store information at fleetfeetcincy.com as well as on Facebook and Instagram. 

Frank and Stacey DeJulius have owned the current Fleet Feet Cincinnati locations in Blue Ash and Oakley since 2012, and offer the area’s largest training program for the Flying Pig Marathon, which last year saw over 800 of runners and walkers. Both natives of Ohio, the two have a daughter Olive, with a second child on the way in 2019.
