“Obviously we are delighted to be recognised as one of Asics’ premier retailers.” says owner Sandy Clisham, “To gain ‘Running Expert’ status we were challenged to meet a number of retail standards set by Asics and we believe that achieving these indicates that the shop is supplying quality products, good customer service and value for money.
“As an independent running specialist, Asics is just one of several brands that we offer and each one is slightly different in terms of functionality and technology. Our key expertise is in understanding and explaining the products and matching them to the individual needs of our customers.”
Coventry Runner is a former Godiva Award winner. Judging it as ‘Best New Venture’ in the 2007 awards, the judges made particular reference to the ‘outstanding levels of customer service’ demonstrated by the business.
