Throroughly unsatisfactory. Note: I have not purchased anything from them; this is a comment based solely on speaking with a Philadelphia Runner employee on the phone.

I purchased a groupon on 10/1/09 for Philadelphia Runner - $19 for $40 worth of goods. Sounded like a great opportunity to try out a store that is normally out of my price range, but I had heard that they had great selection and good advice.

Sadly, I will never know. My groupon expired 4/3/10. I realized it today, 4/9/10. I called to ask if I could still use it and was told, "No. We're sorry but we cannot accept expired groupons. If you bring it in, we can give you 15% off. We don't make any money on groupons, but you can take it up with them." Six days from the expiration date?!? I would expect this type of money grubbing and inflexibility from a Walmart. Or a Dick's. But from a local business that's supposedly known for it's awesome staff and high-quality merchandise, I was surprised and disappointed.

I've bought many groupons and always been happy to use them; they've introduced me to new businesses or allowed me to try businesses I'd heard of but hadn't used yet. All other merchant groupons have been a pleasure to use.

Philadelphia Runner, I hope it was worth however much you had to pay the groupon folks. I would have liked to have become your customer and shared how awesome my experience was.

They staff at Philadelphia Runner are very helpful. They will help to make sure you are purchasing the right shoe for your type of foot. It's pretty expensive but they only carry good quality stuff.

I had a very nice experience here. I was looking for a new brand of walking socks, and even though it was just shy of closing the sales person stayed late to help me through the decision.

If I didn't already have another specialty store that I have been going to for years for sneakers, I would definitely go here.

Philadelphia Runner is a great store for both the serious runner and the person who is just getting started. They carry a wide array of running shoes, apparel, and accessories. They have all the top brand names. They also offer gait analysis and will lead you to make the right decision on picking a running shoe appropriate for you. They also are associated with a group of runners and walkers and would be glad to tell you about that and get you involved.
