How long have you been in business?
We opened our doors officially March 3rd, 2012.
We moved from our Franklin Street location in December of 2014. We are now located at 2141 Wilma Rudolph, Suite I.
Best selling item?
With being a specialty running shoe store, shoes are obviously our best selling item but Brooks is our best selling brand. We have 9 brands to choose from but we have noticed that most runners coming into the store really like the feel and comfort that Brooks provides with their latest running shoes. We never push the customer into any type of brand we always base everything off of the runner and what feels best on their foot.
What do you want women to know about your business?
This is a store for every level of runner, you do not have to be a seasoned runner. We are here to help you get fitted properly so you can have a more enjoyable running experience and so Clarksville can continue to see it's running/fitness community grow and stay healthy.
What was the motivation behind starting your business?
Clarksville didn't have a place to go that caters to the runner, people often had to drive to Nashville to get fitted for shoes or to purchase basic nutritional items. We did not have retail backgrounds but we did enjoy running/fitness, being a Military family and having about 5 years until retirement we wanted to do something that we enjoyed and are passionate about so The Runners Hub was created.
In five years the vision for the business?
Besides the obvious vision of business doing well we want to be at the heart of Clarksville's fitness community, when people think about running and Clarksville we want the first thing that comes to mind to be The Runners Hub.
What is unique about your business?
I think the customer service that you receive from our business is second to none, we thrive off of working with individuals on a one on one basis and never rush anybody out of the store.
Business Culture in 3 words:
The Runners Hub.... When we were in the process of coming up with a name we wanted the name to reflect our future goals and being the Hub of Clarksville's running community is what we strive for.
The Runners Hub is fully staffed with runners, we know the aches and pains that fitness oriented individuals are going through. We are here to help lessen some of those pains and pass our knowledge off to all of our local athletes.
