City Sports to open 21st store, in Vermont
Boston -- City Sports will open its 21st store, in Burlington, Vt., on May 6.
The eco-conscious space—built utilizing reclaimed materials from previous stores—was designed to capture the spirit of the community. The existing ceiling was kept, and all lighting fixtures were replaced with energy-efficient bulbs.
“Our design philosophy was simple: build a store that is very much on-brand for City Sports and fits into the active Burlington community,” said City Sports president and CEO Jeff Connor. “We definitely wanted to amplify our shared New England heritage and include attributes that are important to both brands, building an open, easy-to-navigate store with approachable and sustainable nuances.”
The store features designated shopping areas separated by activity and gender. Other features include a running track that allows customers to wear-test footwear in a real-life environment.
