First off, thank you to the medical professionals and state, county, city and community officials leading this fight. I'd also like to thank all who have supported Fleet Feet while we have been closed to help fight COVID-19 locally.
Some new things to announce this week:
First, we will standardize our curbside pick-up hours to 10 AM – 2 PM, Monday through Saturday. Anything you order from us can be picked up during this window. When you arrive, call the store at 315-449-2693 and we will bring out your order. Just pop your trunk, and we will send you on your way, safely. Curbside pick-up is available in DeWitt only at this time (it is just Ellen, Erin and myself fulfilling orders).
Next, the great folks at Feetures Socks have provided Fleet Feet customers another way to help fight Coronavirus. Until further notice, each time you buy a pair of Feetures socks from Fleet Feet Syracuse, Feetures will donate a pair of socks to the medical professionals who are helping take care of Coronavirus victims. The details:
Finally, the CDC last week, suggested that Americans should have some kind of face covering whenever you are outside to help the fight against COVID-19. They recommended that citizens should not use the same masks that health care users are using, so that these masks are preserved for those providing care.
Marcia, our purchasing manager texted us last week and suggested that Buffs would work great per the CDC guidelines. For the unacquainted, Buffs are a multifunctional piece of headwear that can be used for face protection, as a scarf, a headband, a do-rag or a hat.
So if you have a Buff at home, now would be a great time to start using it. If you don't have one, Fleet Feet received a shipment of Cool NET UV+ Buff’s designed for spring and summer use.
Normally priced at $24-$26, we will be selling them for $19.99. Versatile not just in function, but in style. We have tons of colors and designs. Phone orders only. Call the store at 315-449-2693 to place an order for curbside pick-up.
The store may be closed, but RUNNING IS NOT CANCELED.
We miss our running/walking groups and training buddies. So while we maintain a safe social distance, our Fleet Feet coaches are working together to provide free daily workouts to the #3run5 community. This group is open to runners and walkers of all abilities!
Sign-up here and we'll send a daily workout directly to your inbox. Workouts can be modified for any ability or intensity. The important part is to keep moving.
Don't forget to share with us how you're staying active by tagging @fleetfeetsyr using #3run5 and #togetherwemove. We'll reshare to keep the motivation and support up. Plus, each week we'll pick winners to receive cool FFSYR gear and prizes.
