In the prime of the running specialty store boom, Jim Braden opened up a running shop in Rice Village - a suburb of Houston, Texas. Since that 1987 October, the Fleet Feet Sports store footprint has grown to five locations across the greater Houston area.
Like most of the staff, Marketing Director Lindsey Perkins got into the business because of her passion.
“I started running as an adult to train for a triathlon,” she said. Perkins later started working at the store because, as a marketing professional, she wanted to market something she was passionate about.
“We at Fleet Feet Houston, work diligently to provide the community with top-notch products, the best customer service, and the deepest knowledge bank,” she said.
The store hosts and sponsors weekly free community runs throughout the Houston area, as well as sponsoring many local races. The staff are genuinely excited to help and meet new people, and are ready to give everyone a great customer experience.
