This Week's Peachy News
We Love A Big Crowd!
The More The Merrier!

A Big Peachy Thank You to the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety Directors for kicking off their "I Can Do 5K" challenge at our Alpharetta store this past Saturday. Did we mention we love a big crowd?! Nothing gets our team jazzed up more than hanging out with lots of fellow runners and walkers.

Pressed For Time And Want It All?

We gotcha covered! We know you can't always make it in to see us. We want fresh kicks on your feet so you can get a good stress buster run in when you need to. Click the image to the left to see a fun video on how Peachy Express works.

Peachy Express  is available to people living in 80+ zip codes in Metro Atlanta. Check to see if your zip code is on the list, choose your shoes, and you're good to go! Fresh kicks will reach you in a few hours*, and delivery is on us! If your favorite pair of shoes is not on the list, just call your neighborhood BPRC. If the shoe is in stock, it will be on it's way! (If it isn't, there's always a plan B.)

*Orders must placed by 6:00pm weekdays, and 4:00pm Saturdays. Sorry, this service is not available on Sundays.
