The Philadelphia Runner in Manayunk is back to in-person operations after a seven-week closure.
Why it matters: The independent running company, which has four other locations, serves as a hub for runners.
- The Manayunk store is the meeting place for the Philadelphia Running Club on Thursdays.
State of play: The store at 4358 Main Street had been shuttered since early September after sustaining significant damage during Hurricane Ida.
- The store's stockroom — located in the basement — completely flooded during storm, store manager Michael Zabrodski told Mike this week.
- "I don't think it was ever a thought to throw in the towel and be done," he said.
Zoom out: The remnants of Ida caused at least $23 million in damages to Manayunk businesses, depressing foot traffic and forcing several temporary closures.
- The Manayunk Canal Towpath, which was closed due to Ida, has since reopened.
