We are excited to announce that our Acton location will now be open starting at 9 AM on weekdays. We hope that the switch from 10 AM to 9 AM will be an added convenience to our local customers. Weekend hours will remain the same (Sat 10 – 5 PM, Sun 12 – 5 PM) and our store hours in Lowell will remain the same (M-F 10 – 7 PM, Sat 10 – 5 PM, Sun 12 – 5 PM).
Nagog Seasons Wrap-up
We are also coming off a successful inaugural race weekend for the Nagog Seasons Half Marathon & 5k. The half marathon saw 188 finishers while the 5k saw 73. We received some great feedback from the race, especially in regards to the challenging but scenic course, and are excited for the race to grow. We received a tremendous amount of help from the Acton Boxboro HS cross country teams and from local Acton residents who volunteered their time and effort. We thank you all for that! We were able to raise approximately $5,000, which will be split between thyroid cancer research at UMass Medical and a new track facility for ABHS. On the competitive side of the race Nick Santoro (1st, Worchester), Josh Zolla (2nd, Freeport, ME), and local star Jeff Veiga (3rd, Lowell) battled it out for the top 3 spots and their share of the prize money. For the women, Maine stars Sheri Piers (1st) and Kristen Barry (3rd) were split up by Acton resident Kristen Lerra (2nd). Results are located here.
