Black Friday Running Deals
November 22, 2012
Most people wake up on Black Friday and go shopping at some God awful early hour, but as runners we are probably off logging some miles at 5 am. Below are some of the Black Friday sales at my favorite local running stores.
Hours: 10 am – 6 pm
4730 E. Indian School, Phoenix
Rather than the traditional early morning deals, iRun owner and ultra runner Mark will be hosting a Black Friday Happy Hour – Fri 3-6pm with 15% off everything except Garmin. 5% off extra if you are fashionable enough to wear U of A colors. (I suppose Mark will take pity and offer the same discount for those unfortunate souls that wear maroon and gold) Beer and wine will be served and football will be on the big screen as well.
The rest of the weekend is 10% off shoes and 15% off apparel.
Hours: 10 am – 6 am
6505 N. 16th St., Phoenix
You won’t need to wake up early to go see Craig, Ron or any of the other great folks at Runner’s Den on Friday. They will be offering 25% of all in-store apparel plus special 30% on select items.
If you buy $100 of gift cards for your friends and family you will get a bonus $25 gift card you can use to buy yourself something nice.
Lastly Asics 2170 and Brooks Adrenelines will be on sale for $79.95.
Still in a post Thanksgiving food coma on Friday? Don’t worry, the sale runs through the weekend!
Road Runner Sports
Hours: 9 am – 7 pm
43 S. McClintock, Tempe (Tempe Marketplace) or 7077 E. Mayo Blvd., Scottsdale
Are you a VIP member? If so, you will save an additional 10% bringing the total discount to 20%. If you are needing a GPS watch, he Garmin 610 will have 100 bucks knocked off it.
There are oodles of online sales, but the folks are running stores are so much more enjoyable than a cyber transaction. So sleep in, go for a run and then go visit one of these great stores and talk some running and buy some gear at a great price.
