Fleet Feet announced opening its latest store in Fort Wayne North, IN. Owned and operated by Jeanice Croy, Kevin Croy and Maggie Croy-Schuck, who also owns the Fort Wayne Southwest store. The location opened in the Northbrook Shopping Center at 1549 West Dupont Road.

This is the second Fleet Feet in Fort Wayne and the ninth store in Indiana. The Southwest location opened in 2013 and has been voted one of The Running Event’s Best Running Stores in America in six of the nine years it’s been open.

“Fort Wayne is the second largest city in Indiana, and it’s currently going through a renaissance. We have over 120 miles of trails, and earlier this year, Fort Wayne was named a Runner Friendly Community by the Road Runners Club of America,” said Kevin Croy. “We train over 480 runners annually at our current location and are excited to be opening a second location.”

“For nearly ten years, the Croy family has dedicated themselves to sharing their passion for running with their community and making a difference in keeping people healthy and active,” said John Moloznik, vice president of business development for Fleet Feet. “Fort Wayne is one of the fastest growing cities in the Great Lakes region, and we’re excited to expand with the Croys to serve more running and walking customers in their community.”

Founded in 1976, Fleet Feet is the largest franchisor of locally owned and operated run specialty stores with more than 250 locations in 40 states and a national headquarters in Carrboro, NC.
