On November 1st, Fleet Feet Orlando owners announced the opening of their NEW Maitland location for February 1st of 2021. "From the beginning of us purchasing the Fleet Feet Franchise in 2006, opening a location in Maitland was the original goal. At that time there we really not many options for retail in the City." Says Co- Owner Eric Bartos, "Fourteen years later we have a vibrant bustling growing central core with incredible locally owned businessthat are having amazing success and sharing our beautiful community to the greater Orlando region. The location is amazing. The City is currently constructing a 2 million dollar Independence Square park directly across from our front entry on Independence Ln and right next door to City Hall. As residents of Maitland for over 20 years, this is a dream come true."
The new space is bordered by Horatio Ave and Packwood Ave, just one block off Hwy 17/92 and Maitland Ave. The location is known as the Maitland City Centre which offers apartment homes, live+work untis enviroment and great locally owned restaurants such as Medici, Boku Sushi, The Outpost, Sanford Brewing and Starbucks Coffee. Maitland is a walkable community with ammenities that suit the Fleet Feet life. Safe running and Biking routes are clearly marked throughout the city providing the perfect environment for Fleet Feet to have group runs and walks, pub runs and more fitness focused events and activities. We are super excited to be going to Maitland.
The opening of the Maitland store will be simultaneous with the closing of the Altamonte location which has spent the last 13 years in the Renaissance Centre. Altamonte has been our home for our original store since 2007, but the opportunity to be in Maitland was something that could not be passed up. The new store will be an 8 minute or 3 mile drive South of the current Altamonte store. From I4, take Maitland Blvd East to Maitland Ave. Make a right on Maitland Ave to a Left on Horatio and Independence is the first right over the Railroad Tracks. Get Moving to Maitland!
