OPEN AGAIN: West Seattle Runner, with extra safety measures

The first of many reopening announcements, with this morning’s news that King County got the state OK to move immediately into “modified Phase 1” – the photo is from West Seattle Runner (2743 California SW; WSB sponsor), which is now open!

We are open now until 4 tonight. Tomorrow we will be open 10-5, and Sunday 11-4. Starting next week our hours will be 10-6 M-F, 10-5 Sat and 11-4 Sun until phase 4.

We have gone a little over the top to keep staff and customers safe and distanced. We’ve added barriers to keep shoppers and people checking out separated even in close confines.

Even before state orders in March required WSR and other retailers to close in-store service, they had implemented special protection, well before even “essential” businesses followed suit.

    I noticed that many stores are out of shower curtain liners!  Guess we all know why!

    This is probably a stupid question, but do they sell cycling shoes? My Peloton is coming in a month and I need to get some shoes for it and would love to support a local biz!

      Try Second Gear Sports in Morgan Junction. They sell a wide variety of new and used sporting goods.

    My partner and I are immunocompromised. We’ve bought shoes here twice in the last year before Covid and were considering buying online but now I think we’ll be comfortable going to the store with the precautions they’ve put in place :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
