Big River Running is a family of professionals dedicated to performance and fit from head to toe. With a passion to serve customers by going above and beyond expectations, we work to deliver the best possible shopping experience with a high quality selection of products and service that ultimately helps our customers perform better, feel comfortable, and express their style.

COVID-19 updateBig River Running is now open for in-store fittings. 

The safety and health of our customers and employees is our first priority. In accordance with CDC and our local government’s recommendations we have implemented the following measures in our store.

– All employees wear masks and sanitize their hands before and after each fitting.

–  Separate fit stations are set up throughout the store to allow for proper social distancing.

Local and national guidelines are followed limiting the volume of people in our physical store. You may be asked to wait outside if we are at capacity.

Our cleaning and sanitizing procedures have been ramped up to ensure high touch surfaces and our stores are impeccably clean.

Additional hygiene safety and sanitization training has been conducted for all staff.

In addition to the option of an in-store fit experience, we will continue to offer virtual shoe fittings. Orders can also be placed over the phone or online with curbside pick-up, free delivery or free shipping.

Last but not least, thank you. We are filled with gratitude for the support you’ve shown us as a small, locally owned business over the years and especially over these last months. We look forward to serving you in-person, virtually, over the phone and online.
