In addition, the stores now also carry small appliances, clothing and footwear, lawn and garden tools, plumbing and electrical supplies, toys and paint. Twenty of the Runnings stores nationwide also sell firearms, which are subject to local and state laws.
Runnings has grown from just eight stores in two states to 37 stores in the states of Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and New York, as of early 2015. The company is due to complete a second phase of expansion to the northeastern United States by opening new stores in New York and New Hampshire later in the year.
Part of this expansion has been facilitated by connecting with customers, offering a broader range of supplies and promoting a redesigned, informative and helpful website. Runnings uses its website to promote deals and offers, feature new products and let customers know about events and new store openings. While it is still famous for being a farm store, Runnings is determined to be a part of everyday life even away from the farm.Learn more about Corporations
