This week we sat down with Ed Brittingham who is the manager of Bryn Mawr Running Company’s West Chester location. Bryn Mawr Running Company is located 24 S High Street.
Tell me about your store and any particular things you believe make it unique.
Bryn Mawr Running Store is a specialty store helping everyone who is active. We are not just for runners, and want to encourage and help people to live a healthy lifestyle. With our knowledge, we hope to help others stay active, while comfortable in their shoes.
What do you love most about being located in West Chester?
To me, the best part about being located in West Chester is the strong business community, and that everyone helps each other. During the pandemic, the community of West Chester was a pivotal part of our store remaining open, and we were able to transition some of our business outside.
What is your company’s mission statement/ goals?
Throughout our stores, we like to tell our customers “We simply love comfortable feet.” We accomplish this daily by properly fitting people for shoes to allow them to be happy and healthy. Personally, what I tell people when they come in is everything starts from the ground up.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your store?
I want everyone to know we are grateful to be a part of the West Chester community, and are appreciative of their shoppers especially within the last two years that have allowed their business to continue.
