Fleet Feet Davis has been selected as one of The 50 Best Running Stores in America. The selection came after a year-long search sponsored by Competitor magazine and the Running Insight newsletter. The Franklin Resource Group, the leading retail merchandise company in the sports industry, sent their secret-shopper reviewers to visit running retailers around the country and rate them based on 20 criteria including environment, fitting and checkout. The stores were also rated on community service, and vendors were asked to evaluate them based on brand building and credit worthiness. The votes have been tabulated. The awards will be presented on Friday, December 9th at a gala dinner and awards ceremony at the Hilton Austin during The Running Event. Co-owners Chris and J.D. Denton will attend the event to accept the award on behalf of the Fleet Feet Davis staff and customers. Fleet Feet Davis has been selected as one of the top 50 for three of the last four years.
