City Sports is planning to open its doors at 475 Washington St., in Wellesley during the last week of September, and has scheduled a grand opening party for Oct. 1 from 10am to 2pm. The event will feature Pinkberry treats and raffles for more than $1K worth of merchandise prizes.
The business touts the “iconic” space it will occupy along the Boston Marathon route and says the store will be like a number of specialty shops within a store, catering to males and females, runners and other sports participants. Customers will have access to iPads and other techie things (including an online Bra Finder) to enhance their shopping experience. Like Marathon Sports, City Sports will host a running group.
