We’re open! Deliveries available.

Coronavirus Response – update for June:

We’ve remained open all along. The nature of our daily transactions has always been primarily one-on-one, and we don’t have staff, it’s just Larry here to serve you. We are allowing 1 customer (or family) at a time in the store, and frequently cleaning commonly touched surfaces (and washing hands of course). We also have covered outdoor space with a bench for those who prefer not to go inside.

To avoid potential wait time when you arrive, please call 604-886-0083 before you head out, to find out if we’re busy and when a time slot is available. Don’t show up if you’re sick, of course, and please wash your hands before arriving. Mask wearing is your choice; we don’t require it.

Self-isolating? 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. Deliveries will be after store hours (currently Mon-Sat 10-5, closed Sun).

The bottom line: we are here to serve you. We don’t want anyone to get injured from wearing worn-out shoes, because getting regular exercise is a critical factor 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 when races are allowed to happen again. The BMO Sunshine Coast April Fool’s Run presented by Eastlink has been deferred to April 11, 2021. But some smaller events may go ahead later this summer (stay tuned for updates).

Our club training sessions will be starting up again shortly, following guidelines from BC Athletics and Athletics Canada (groups of 10 or less).

Take care and we’ll see you soon,
