We hope you’re staying warm with Episode 130 of The BibRave Podcast! We have a fascinating conversation with Dave Zimmer, owner of Fleet Feet Chicago – one of the most successful running stores in America.
We hear all about how Dave and his wife Lisa launched their first Fleet Feet Chicago in 1995. Dave then shares his perspective on what has changed (or hasn’t) about the running industry and running retail across the past 24 years, along with some behind-the-scenes knowledge of what really goes into operating and managing a running store. If you’ve ever been fitted at a store, joined a group training run, or if you’ve NEVER set foot in a running store, there’s something to takeaway in this episode – so you won’t want to miss it.
