The inaugural Our Community Retailer Award celebrates Superfeet retail partners and their commitment to give back to their communities. We received a tremendous number of nominations for Superfeet retailers who are striving to make the world a better place in so many ways. From non-profit donations collected at group runs, to making shoes accessible and affordable to those in their community, these retailers are doing incredible things. We couldn't be happier to show them some extra love and support.
Read on for more about the finalists for this inaugural award, and a little about some of the non-profit organizations they partner with.
A friendly, welcoming environment and knowledgeable staff aren't the only reasons to shop with Terraloco. They are also locally-owned, female-led and committed to giving back to their community. Every year, Terraloco donates more than $10,000 to support different causes in their community. One of the ways they give back is by hosting a five dollar 5K Run every Monday to benefit a different local organization each week. In addition, they host several different events throughout the year, all with a charitable focus, like Ladies Night, where they've raised funds for Bolder Options & Girls on the Run.
