Fleet Feet has to be the busiest store in West Hartford Center. It took six visits before I found the store quiet enough that the owners could be photographed.
Sisters Steph and Carrie wanted to work together. They are passionate about running, so they bought Fleet Feet in 2008. Steph (in the hat, the extrovert) is a former meteorologist. She handles marketing and promotions. Carrie (the introvert) has an MBA; she worked in international trade in Washington. Carrie runs the business side. Fleet Feet sells athletic shoes and clothing.
