“The only place in town we buy shoes!LEARN MORE
The staff is so helpful and kind. They make you feel like family!”Jody Osborne, Customer
Who Are We?
Chad Varga, Owner
Tough enough to fit shoes for the most unique foot, tender enough to kick around a soccer ball with the kids in the store. His schedule may be hectic, but he’s never too busy to spend extra time with customers.
Did you know? Chad buys lunch for the staff every weekend!
Laryssa Martinovich, Marketing Coordinator
Convinced her mini aussie will someday become the “Store Dog”. Typically the one to turn up the thermostat at least two degrees upon getting to work.
Did you know? Laryssa met Chad as a customer at Front Runner! Her second visit was to drop off her resume’.
Andrew Dorn, Manager
Usually gets asked by customers if he’s studied sports medicine. Known for his ability to strike up a conversation about anything and take home the trivia trophy.
Did you know? Andrew ran the Chicago marathon in 2hrs and 42 minutes. That’s 6:10/mile pace for 26.2 miles!
The only employee capable of organizing the back room in a few hours. Usually flatters customer with his good looks and maturity.
Did you know? Most of our ads feature Garner! He’s unofficially (officially) the face of Front Runner. #GetLikeGarner
Christian Singer, Assistant Manager
Always first to greet customers and be the joke cracker in the morning. We can’t promise he won’t have coffee at his side while he does a fitting!
Did you know? Christian met his wife Paige at Front Runner. They now have a baby girl together!
“It’s my first day” and “Buy the left shoe get the right shoe free” are the same jokes Dennis will use with customers over and over again during the course of the day. They never get old!
Did you know? Dennis volunteer teaches water aerobics at the Sports Barn. He broke the record for most participants!
