Area running and walking enthusiasts have plenty to be excited about, as a new store meant to cater to the needs of runners opened Monday in downtown Ruston.
The store, Tri-Running, is the third of its kind in the state, and the recently opened Ruston location has been a vision of the store’s owners for the past 10 years.
“The whole thought process on bringing this store here started about 10 years ago. I am from this area, and wanted to build a specialty store for runners,” said co-owner Shawn McMillan. “The market really wouldn’t support us over the years, but we kept looking to do it, following the patterns of the economy, and we finally have a store.”
