Runner’s Block is moving to The Empire Mall.
The running apparel, shoe and accessory store has been at Beakon Centre at 57th Street and Louise Avenue for 10 years.
It’s relocating to an open space in the Macy’s wing across from The Buckle.
“We’re excited for the move. I think it will be good for us,” manager Ed Thomas said.
The store is looking forward to the increased foot traffic and visibility it anticipates at the mall, he said.
“Contrary to other areas in the country, the mall here does fairly well, and our region does fairly well. It was still the most visited place in the state last year, so if you just look at it from a numbers perspective, you get a certain number walking by and a certain percent will walk in and a certain percent will buy,” Thomas said.
The store plans to open at the mall no later than Dec. 1, he said.
“I’d like it before Black Friday, but I doubt it. It’s possible, but we’ll see.”
A longtime store for runners will soon have a new location.
