Boulder Running Company to open largest specialty run store in US
The Boulder Running Company has announced the opening of its new flagship store to open in February 2014 in the Cherry Creek Shopping Center, central to many of Denver’s most popular multi-use pathways. It will become the largest specialty running store in the U.S. boasting over 17,700 square feet (nearly 3 times the size of the Boulder and Littleton locations).
We are thrilled for Boulder Running Company’s continued growth in Colorado and to become a part of the Denver community. As with our three current Colorado locations, we aspire for this store to continue our commitment to the community and a leader in the specialty running industry. – Amanda Charles, District Manager Boulder Running Company
