I found out a couple of weeks back that City Sports is shutting down after 30 years! I personally can’t claim to remember a Boston without them. If I was running either a race or a regular run, especially in the summer, I would usually see at least one of City Sports t-shirt. They’ve always had a large selection and were eager to equip you for whatever you needed. Plus they had a lot of really convenient locations. They also had a decent running shoe selection if you knew that was what you wanted. I guess it was just their time, I’ve seen new running stores open recently, like Greater Boston Running Company, and in new places. City Sports has been part of the Boston landscape for a long time, a lot like Newbury Comics. Shortly after learning the news, I made sure to hit up the Harvard Sq store because I wanted to make sure that I got signature ‘City Sports: Boston’ t-shirts. Being in another store a few days ago, it looks like the whole chain will be done at the end of the month. Considering all the race shirts I have at this point I’m happy to include them in the mix.
