THE STORY OF THE SOUTH CITY STORE:
After 18 months of business at our first location in West County Matt and I decided to expand and bring Big River to a new area. We chose South St. Louis because of the wonderful running and walking community that exists there and we saw a need for a running store in the city. Plus, I grew up in the city so I am unbelievably excited about coming home and opening up a business less than 2 miles from where I grew up!- BEN
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT THE NEW STORE:
As has been our mission from the very beginning we want to be more than just a place to buy shoes. You can expect to see us at Francis Park handing out Gatorade to thirsty runners and walkers on hot weekends. We will have a weekly Monday evening group run all year long: rain or shine, hot or cold! Beginning in April our Sunday Long Run schedule will include a South City Run every third Sunday. Our staff will rotate between the two stores so every single customer will continue to be properly fitted for shoes, for apparel, and for sports bras and
we will carry everything and anything for runners and walkers.
We could not have picked a better location for this store. Located on Devonshire and Macklind we are in the heart of the Macklind Business District. Within walking distance is The Murdoch Perk (a great place for a post run cup of coffee!), The Macklind Avenue Deli (unbelievable beer selection and great outdoor dining in the summer), The Mack (awesome bar and grill), and Manzo's Kitchen Inc. (Italian Grocery Store with great sandwiches). All these great businesses make Macklind a great walking district so pop in next time you're walking by!
The location is very easy to get to from all directions. If you are familiar with Ted Drewes (which we figure most of you are) you go east on Chippewa from Ted Drewes for about a mile and turn right on Macklind. We are a five short blocks down on the left hand side.
