We are thrilled to announce the opening of our sixth Gazelle Sports location in Downtown Grand Rapids in Spring/Summer of 2022!
Founded in Kalamazoo, Mich. in 1985, we currently have locations in Birmingham, Grand Rapids (East Beltline), Holland, Kalamazoo and Northville. The new downtown Grand Rapids store will be our first location to open since 2016.
Located just blocks from Rosa Parks Circle at 52 Monroe Center St. NW, the planned 3,600-square-foot store will serve as a hub for our Downtown Grand Rapids run community, including our largest event- She Runs Grand Rapids Half Marathon, 10k and 5k (formerly Gazelle Girl).
The new location is being made possible through a partnership with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. (DGRI) and Rockford Construction.
“As a business that started in downtown Kalamazoo more than 35 years ago, we believe in the power of local business adding to the vibrancy and experience of a great downtown community,” said Jen Brummitt, CEO. “The vision for downtown Grand Rapids as a retail and wellness destination is a great fit for our organization, and we look forward to further committing to Grand Rapids by planting our roots on Monroe Center.”
The new downtown Grand Rapids Gazelle Sports will offer the latest in running footwear and apparel. We will also host programming and events like free community runs/walks, injury-prevention clinics, social events, fundraisers and more!
