ROME, Ga. – For the past four years, Jay Stephenson and Powell Fulton has seen their love for fitting people in correct footwear take them down a path that has led them to becoming owners of what has become a successful business.
And it’s growing even more.
The two Romans, who founded GoGoRunning, have announced that they have taking an even bigger stride forward as they have moved to a new and bigger location and have grown into Rome Georgia’s Footwear store – GoGo at The Shoe Box.
“We have sold the tennis part of the business to the Rome Tennis Store at the Rome Tennis Center,” Stephenson said about the changes, one that includes the move from their previous location on East 2nd Avenue to the former home of Heaven’s Attic at 1018 Martha Berry Blvd., “and we are excited to point the tennis community to The Rome Tennis Store.
“The sale, however, of the tennis side of our business as allowed us to increase our inventory in shoes of all types,” he said. “We are excited to help people get in comfortable shoes for kids, work, casual and exercise needs.”
The move to the new location provides much more space for the business as it gone from a 1,800-square-foot location to one that has more than 4,000 square feet.
“The move was to accommodate a growing business that needed more space,” said Stephenson.
