Carrboro, N.C. – Fleet Feet Sports, the retail leader in building thriving local running communities, is excited to announce the official grand opening of its Mechanicsburg, Pa. location. The new store location replaces the previous temporary location in Mechanicsburg and will be located at 6416 Carlisle Pike in the Silver Springs Square shopping plaza.

The store is owned and operated by Fred and Shelby Joslyn and will double the size of the temporary store at 2,000 sq. feet. With the store size increase, the new location will create supplementary staff positions, in addition to the five staff members currently employed.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally open our permanent location in Mechanicsburg,” said co-owner Fred Joslyn. “The larger space allows us to offer a more broad selection of shoes, apparel, gear and essentials and enables us to be a true resource for all of our community’s running and fitness needs.”

The store will hold its grand opening celebration on Saturday, November 14. The daylong event will include a group run to benefit local charity, Four Diamonds, beginning at 8:30 a.m., a fitness apparel fashion show starting at noon and happy hour presented by New Balance at 4 p.m.

In addition, there are multiple opportunities for deals and savings for customers. The store will be offering 10% off all purchases throughout the day, guests can also try their hand at corn hole tosses and earn an extra 5% off for each successful toss (up to 25% off the total purchase). Finally, Fleet Feet Sports will be raffling off three grand prizes for everyone who makes a purchase on Saturday, including prizes from Adidas, Oiselle and New Balance.

Beyond the celebration, the store is a resource for anyone looking to reach their fitness goals. Every Thursday at 6 p.m., the Mechanicsburg location conducts community runs with differing themes and giveaway opportunities throughout the year. Registration is also now open for Marathon, Half Marathon and 5k/10k training programs – all beginning in January.

The Mechanicsburg location is the second Fleet Feet Sports location in the state of Pennsylvania. The leader in franchising locally owned-and-operated, community-oriented running retailers, Fleet Feet Sports supports its stores from its headquarters in Carrboro, N.C. and will celebrate its 40th year as a brand in 2016.
