We're glad you asked! There are many misconceptions about online shopping, so we'd like to clear up some things. First, when you buy from a locally owned store, you support our local economy, help create jobs, and keep our community a cool place to live. But it's not just that. We can offer you a far better experience than an impersonal giant e-commerce site.
- But how? Isn't it cheaper to buy on online?
Short answer:nope. We will price match, if you find the same item somewhere legit. If a price you find online seems too good to be true- it probably is. Unfortunately, not everyone on the internet is nice.
- Amazon told me if I pay them $100 a year, they will get it to me the next day, how can you beat that?
Sorry (not sorry) Amazon, when you buy from Beyond Running in-store you get to take your purchase with you on the very same day! And bonus, we offer free local delivery, and-whenever possible- we will deliver the same day! Sorry robots at Amazon. The little guy wins here.
- Yeah, but free returns online, so?
True. But how much fun is it to wait for a package, have it arrive, and then find out that the size 7 you ordered is waaay too small? Box it up, ship it back and wait. What. A. Drag. Here's what we think works better. Let us find you the right size in the first place. You can try before you buy!
- Zappos and Amazon say they have the best customer service. Can you beat that?
Dear impersonal internet overlords: we see your "customer service" and raise you "good ol' fashion human connection." When's the last time Amazon asked you how your training is going? Or told you not to buy a shoe because it's not right for you? We live. and. breathe. this. Let us prove it to you!
