Running Specialty Store

Runners Route

Founded in 1983. RUNNERS ROUTE has grown to be Hawaii's largest run specialty store. With 2 locations across the island of Oahu, we continue to be a store by runners for runners serving people both local or visiting from around the world. Our vision extends beyond our current position with plans for new locations in the near future. We also have many original items that can only be purchased at Runner's Route stores.

Summary of Operations

at Stores

In the RUNNERS ROUTE, the General Manager is the leader and store managers of each store make shops that make use of the characteristics of each shop. While competing for the number of "smiles", everyone is constantly striving for new challenges while presenting their opinions in order to increase "smile" without a position of part-time jobs or employees. We value valuable advice and communication on online shopping, and we are working on the theme of cheaper price than anywhere. Of course, We are doing our best while working towards a workplace where all the crews working together will be able to work "fun" with the General Manager as the lead, so that it will be "smiling".

at Events

We also hold a Honolulu marathon and opening events for each event every year, collecting selected members from each store and exciting sales at the event. In addition, each member selected as a member of the event brings up the learning to the store after the event and it also leads to the level up of each store by sharing it to other crew. We regularly have dinner meetings inside the company, and after the event we have also launched and we think that exchanges outside the workplace are increasing their awareness. Every March, We participate in JTB-sponsored Ekiden Conference and are excited like an in-house sports festival. We expect more things that someone learned will spread in a chain.

"Smile and energy"
In our company we always have keywords of "smile and energy". With "smile and spirit" there is a culture of being able to survive most things. If you have "smile and energy", We think that the way of thinking also looks forward and we think it is possible to find good ideas and coping methods. Every day we try our best as a company that we can cherish as a culture that inherits "smile and spirit" that everyone knows.

"Have a fun challenge"
I think there is a nasty job and a fun work for "challenge". Just as much work as possible should not be fun. However, if you can understand the significance and meaning of what they think and do in the same job, it will change to a fun challenge. In our company, each crew thinks and proposes and aims for a workplace where "fun challenges" can be made.
