City Sports on the move


Boston -- Boston-based City Sports has entered a new state.

The specialty store retailer announced the opening a 10,000-sq.-ft. store at Mosaic District, a mixed-use lifestyle center located in Merrifield, Virginia.

City Sports Mosaic marks the company’s 26th location, its seventh store in the Greater Washington area, and its first in Virginia. The new store features a full range of athletic shoes and apparel, as well as equipment for everything from tennis and baseball to soccer and basketball. The company is known for personalized services such as free gait analysis to help customers find the perfect pair of shoes, as well as complimentary tennis racquet stringing.

In addition, the retailer hosts weekly run clubs at most of its store locations. Store employees, including former collegiate level runners, serve as pacers for 3-mile and 5-mile runs, offering training tips and advice for athletes of any ability.

“We often say that City Sports associates are ‘athletes serving athletes,” said Marty Hanaka, CEO of City Sports. “With deep product knowledge and extensive experience in their respective sports, our associates give our customers tailored advice on everything from running shoes to activity trackers to fitness apparel,” added Hanaka.
