A new retail store is coming to the Canandaigua area.
Officials with Runnings, Your Home, Farm and Outdoor Store, announced Friday that it will open three stores in New York this year with one located in Canandaigua. We’re told each location will be hiring nearly 80 workers.
"We explored several places to introduce a new region to Runnings, and we found upstate New York has tremendous communities for our unique retail development and friendly, hometown service," said Dan Herrmann, Runnings Chief Operations Officer. "We don't just open stores, we want to be a part of the community, creating jobs, increasing the tax base and providing top quality brands with great products families use every day."
Runnings is a family-owned retailer offering thousands of items including sporting goods, clothing, footwear, pet supplies, house wares, tools, farm supplies, lawn & garden supplies, toys, and outdoor equipment.
