Fall 2020 notes

We’re open for business as usual! The nature of our daily transactions has always been one-on-one, and we don’t have staff, it’s just Larry here to serve you. We have covered outdoor space with a bench for those who prefer not to go indoors.

Prefer to shop from home? We can deliver! If you know what shoes you want, give us a call at 604-886-0083 and make your request. We can take your credit card payment over the phone, or accept e-transfer. Deliveries will be after store hours (Mon-Sat except holidays).

We have just one request: don’t come shopping if you’re sick. What you choose to wear on your face or hands or otherwise is up to you. We respect your choices and your privacy.

The bottom line: we are here for you. We don’t want anyone to get injured from wearing worn-out shoes. Getting regular exercise (preferably outdoors) is super important for immune health. Running or walking is an uncomplicated activity that can be done just about anywhere. Forest trails are especially health-boosting for body and mind!

We encourage you to keep up your fitness, and be ready for if and when races >50 people are “allowed”. For now, the next BMO Sunshine Coast April Fool’s Run presented by Eastlink is scheduled for April 11, 2021. Stay tuned for updates in the coming months.

Our club training is FREE this fall, just show up and sign a waiver the first day and join our casual pace groups, Wednesday evenings 6pm and Saturday mornings 8am at the store.

Take care and we’ll see you soon,

Larry & Teresa Nightingale
