Very knowledgeable staff. They took the time to put me on a treadmill and determine the proper running shoe for me. I will be buying all of my running gear from this store from now on.

I am an overweight, 58 yr old who hadn't run since 1980. My fear was that I'd be treated poorly - but just the opposite. The staff was thorough, explaining everything, and listening to my questions attentively. At no time did I feel ridiculed - can't understand why some other reviewers said they were. I ended up with good-fitting shoes - and will definitely come back if future needs arise. Worth a drive in from Snellville.

I read the review from the person who had a bad experience as a new runner. Mine was exactly the opposite. As a matter of fact, for one of my first races, we met at BPRC. So naturally I went there to get shoes. I had no idea what a fit process was or why you would even care. I got the best service possible and found the sales person fascinating. I told him I was preparing for a race and we talked about all the running and races he had done and I left even more inspired. I felt very comfortable even though I had gone in the store expecting to feel awkward about running on a treadmill in front of a bunch of strangers while they assessed me. But again, they explained everything they were doing and why. I thought they were extremely professional. They do get very busy at times - its a popular store. Sometimes I wonder if people might be going in with the wrong attitude. I don't know - we are all in it to enjoy running. I can't imagine that they would intentionally turn runners away!

I hate to bash the most loved running store in ATL. But, I have to. I dread going in here and probably won't going forward. Yes, they may be experts... but they're experts with attitudes and zero customer service. Wait, let me back up... they're nice until they find out you're a 'beginner' and then they are rude. When I told them it was my 1st marathon, I was scoffed at and was then told by my sales rep that he has done 'double digit marathons' (good for you pal). I went in once for a 'run atl' shirt, the sales guy wouldn't even make eye contact and when I asked for them to order one he said they couldn't (I have a friend who got one ordered because they did not have her size) ... same happened when I went to sign up for the Peachtree Sizzler 10K. I shared my stories with some friends and they had similar experiences. They have 'hoity toity' attitudes and I plan to take my business elsewhere.

Not sure what happened with the reviewer below, but every time I've been in Big Peach customer service has been great. Very knowledgeable staff and always very friendly and helpful. I was recently there to purchse a birthday gift for my spouse and my experience there was wonderful. I would definitely recommend Big Peach for your running/walking apparel needs.

I am positively stunned by atlrunfun's review. I have made several visits to Big Peach. The staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to spend as much time as needed to put you in the right shoe. Their fit process only takes about 5 minutes but is thorough and eye opening. I was discouraged from taking a more expensive shoe when trying to decide between two styles.\r
While shoes are sold at retail, it is well worth paying the price for the personalized attention given.\r
I have recommended Big Peach to many friends, both runners and walkers who all agreed it was the best retail experience they ever had.\r
\r
If you are a novice or a serious long-time runner, you can't beat the non-intimidating, fun atmosphere at Big Peach!

This place is great! Before purchasing my running shoes from them my feet and legs ached. Shin splints were a common occurrence and I didn't enjoy running. Their high tech equipment and experience made all the difference.

The first running shoe store I went to didn't pick up my foot pronation when I ran, and after a couple of pairs of shoes and really sore ankles and knees I went to the Big Peach and they instantly picked up on my problem. Their fit process is the best I've ever seen, and the staff is super friendly. I find myself going out of my way to stop in whenever I can, because I just like going to the store. You can't go wrong with the Big Peach!

Big Peach is a great find for all Atlanta runners. I have been running for many years and have never found a running specialty store that supports and encourages running more than Big Peach. The employees focus more on finding the shoe that works best for your body type and running style then on ?making the sale.? If you are looking for the perfect running shoe, go to Big Peach and let them analyze your form on the in-store treadmill. Also, throughout the year Big Peach sponsors various free running events which are worth checking out.
