American Running Company to Move Near Countryside Mall

"We will be next door to the running path that goes over US 19. So we will have hill practice during our monthly runs," Dunedin's only specialty running shop disclosed in a Nov. 1 email newsletter.

Dunedin's only specialty running store is moving to Clearwater this January.

American Running Company, which hosts dozens of area 5K races, announced it would be moving from its Sweetbay shopping center location for a spot next to incoming Sea Dog Brewery near Westfield Countryside Mall on U.S. Highway 19 early next year.

The move to 26024 U.S. Highway 19 N., Clearwater, is exactly 2.11 miles from its Dunedin location, an email newsletter states.

Owners expect to open at the new location Jan. 7, and they are planning a grand opening celebration.

"We will be next door to the running path that goes over US 19. So we will have hill practice during our monthly runs," the company disclosed in a Nov. 1 email newsletter.

American Running Company Inc., is a locally owned and operated franchise running specialty store providing nutrition, apparel, and good fitting shoes for walkers, race walkers, runners, and triathletes.

ARC is my running store! I love the staff and their efforts to enhance the running experience! I can't say enough about the effort they put forth to make their races and practice runs the best! I looked at that location on US19 for the last 4 years and wondered why no one took it on. Obviously ARC had the wisdom and vision to see it as their new home. Can't wait for the Grand Opening! YES, I'm a huge fan!

And it's next to Sea Dog! (I foresee the makings of some fun post-run memories!)
