Owners Jeff, Jason, and Ashley Wells plan to open a second franchise of the brand in Short Pump.
A Westhampton retailer is expanding to Short Pump.
Jeff Wells, along with his son and daughter-in-law Jason and Ashley Wells, plans to open a Fleet Feet Sports franchise at 11651 W. Broad St. in The Promenade Shops in Short Pump. The 1,600-square-foot space was formerly home to an Ntelos Wireless location.

Below is a letter to customers posted on the Westhampton location’s website:
For those of you that have made the drive from the West End, Short Pump, Glen Allen, Goochland, and other areas beyond to shop and train with us at our Westhampton location- we thank you. Now it’s our turn to come to you!We are excited to announce that we will be opening a second Fleet Feet location this summer in Short Pump. Our goal is to better serve surrounding Richmond communities. The new store will be located at 11653 West Broad Street in the Promenade Shops (next to Plow & Hearth).
