Fleet Feet is on the move.

The specialty running shoe and apparel retailer will open its first store in the Dallas area, in Plano, in April, along with its third store in San Antonio. Once the Plano location opens, Fleet Feet will have a total of 12 stores in Texas. 

"We are excited by the opportunities in both San Antonio, Dallas and other Texas markets potentially, to continue serving communities, supporting runners and walkers and outfitting our customers with the best in-store experience possible,” said  Robyn Goby, VP  of development for Fleet Feet, Carrboro, N.C.  The company is the largest franchisor of locally owned and operated running stores with 182 locations in 37 states.

The new Fleet Feet in San Antonio will be located at The Forum at Olympia Parkway retail center. It will mimic the format of Fleet Feet's Austin location, which offers a robust in-store shoe selection from all major running performance brands in lieu of a wide selection of apparel. 

The Plano store will be located at the Preston Towne Crossing retail center.
