What they say about ARC
I wandered in and said, pathetically, to the employee who greeted me, “I’ve never had a pair of running shoes. I need help.” I was directed upstairs to John, who had perhaps the most calm demeanor of anyone I’ve ever met. He was helping another customer, but was totally attentive to me as well; he watched me balance, listened to my concerns about my feet (farcockteh bunion!!!!!!! Yeah, it’s so bad I’m busting out Yiddish for it), and went to work finding me the pairs he thought would fit best. We talked about sizes, he showed me a lacing trick.
John truly cared about my finding the perfect shoes and went back and forth bringing me different pairs and sizes, discussed my needs with me, and chitchatted with both the other customer and me. He encouraged me to not just wander around in the upstairs carpeted area, but also the hardwood floor downstairs, and then took me out into the parking lot so I could run around a bit! That’s something you’d never get buying shoes at Foot Locker or wherever, a chance to take the shoes for an actual real-world jog. There was no upselling, neither John nor the other employee pushed any other products on me (and they had plenty of running clothes, stuff for foot protection, things to work out kinks in your muscles, etc.), just good customer service. Furthermore, if you decide the shoes aren’t right for you, you can bring them back for a full refund within a week, and store credit within 30 days; again, no regular shoe store lets you do any sort of thing once the soles of your shoes have the slightest scuffs.
Don’t forget to check in on your Yelp app; the resulting 10% off on shoes/apparel makes a big difference.
