Potomac River Running Completes Move

New Ballston location for Potomac River Running storeArlington’s Potomac River Running store has completed its move across Ballston.

On Thursday the store wrapped up a move from its former location at 3924 Wilson Blvd to the new location at 4501 N. Fairfax Drive. The new running store is located next to a FedEx office location, across from the Marymount University “Blue Goose” building at the corner of Fairfax Drive and Glebe Road.

While the new store doesn’t have the surface parking lot of the former location, it is validating parking at the building’s underground garage off of N. Vermont Street.

Store co-owners Ray and Cathy Pugsley told us last month that the move was prompted in part by the former location’s lack of street visibility, concern that the single-story shopping center they used to be in would be redeveloped, and the new location’s better proximity to the Custis Trail.

      Just make sure you go during normal store hours. Don’t want you to end up like your fellow alum soiling condo lobby couches.

    Redevelopment fears are probably part of the reason Gold’s Gym is decaying into uselessness.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if PRR dies a slow death in that inconvenient location– I already go to the courthouse fedex instead of the ballston location (I can both drive and metro to the courthouse store). As soon as PRR closed, I started going to Pacers in Clarendon– and I can’t imagine anyone near the VA square metro going out to PRR when Pacers is just as close and right next to the metro stop as well.
