Update: New store West Seattle Runner on track for April opening

Lots of WSB commenter excitement when we first told you last month about Tim and Lori McConnell‘s plans to open a specialty store for runners – since christened West Seattle Runner. They were hoping at the time to open in “early April” – now it’s looking closer to mid-April, with a hoped-for opening date tentatively set: April 10. And a sign’s gone up, as you can see in the photo at left; Tim also sent photos of the interior work they’ve been doing in the space on the 2nd floor of Charlestown Center at California/Charlestown.

To keep up with store doings and their involvement with the local running community, you can join the West Seattle Runner group on Facebook.

    I am in desperate need of a new pair of shoes and have been holding until they open so I can “shop local”. Now just hoping they have them! This is super exciting!

    Semele, What shoes do you wear? (size and model)

    Hi Lori,

    I wear Asics Gel Kayanos Women’s size 10. It seems everytime I need a new pair every running store in town is out! :) Thanks for asking!

    Semele, ASICS is having a tought time keeping Kayanos in stock. We are hoping to get the ones we ordered but we are not sure if they are coming yet. We will keep you updated!
