City Sports is planning a grand opening of its new retail location in "The Street” shopping complex along Route 9 in Chestnut Hill, set for a March 16 opening to coincide with the brand’s 30th anniversary, according to a press release.
The City Sports Chestnut Hill grand opening party will take place on Saturday, March 16 at 10 a.m.
The opening party for customers will include raffles worth over $500 in City Sports merchandise as well as an appearance by former Patriot and ESPN analyst Matt Light.
The first 100 customers through the door will receive a gift bag containing a $10 store gift card and giveaways from City Sports and Nike, with one lucky winner receiving the grand prize: one free pair of shoes a month for a year.
Three-time Super Bowl champ Light will be on hand to sign autographs for fans from 11 to 12:30 p.m. Additional festivities include a 5K fun run sponsored by Nike, free raffles, a DJ, and refreshments.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off City Sports’ 30th birthday than with the housewarming of our new home in Chestnut Hill,” said City Sports President and CEO Edward Albertian. “We have always been embraced by the Chestnut Hill community, and we look forward to offering our customers an unparalleled shopping experience in this exciting new City Sports store at The Street.”
