This Week's Peachy News
Extra Savings!
Our Sale Apparel Is On Sale!

Pardon us for being repetitively redundant, but this is pretty cool and exciting too! To make room for fall running apparel, we recently put some items on sale. If you've dropped by recently, you may have seen these tags:

Save an additional 10% off already marked down items now through August 15th. Next week, save 15% on top of the markdown, and then from August 24-29, get an additional 20% off the sale price. If there is something you like on the sale rack, don't wait! We cannot hold, transfer, or special order any items on sale. Once it's gone...it's gone! 

The fine print: All sales final. May not be combined with other discounts, coupons, or offers.
