Charm City Run announced on Facebook yesterday that it will be closing its Locust Point location at McHenry Row after November 14th.

From the Charm City Run Facebook page:

I hope that you are well and running safe.

After 8 great years, we have decided to close our Locust Point store in McHenry Row. This was not an easy decision. The community embraced us, it is a great place to run and it was the home of many great events. This last year has been a struggle on many fronts for us, for all of you and for the city. While your support has been amazing and has truly kept Charm City Run going some locations were affected worse than others. It was apparent that closing the Locust Point store was in the best interest of Charm City Run’s overall health and sustainability.

I want to thank all of you for your years of support, energy and laughter. I want to thank all of our hardworking staff and in particular Deirdre Weadock who built it, Josh Pickett who sustained it, Blair Wooton who made it last day in and day out and our awesome coaches including Matt Craig and Alex Puccio. While Deirdre has already moved on to greener pastures, all LP staff will be welcomed to stay on at other locations. I also want to thank McHenry Row for years of amazing support and we only wish the McHenry Row team the very best.

If you would like to visit us in Locust Point before we close our doors, we plan to be open regular store hours through November 14th with limited inventory.
After the 14th, we hope that you will consider visiting us in Fells Point or our other locations and I look forward to seeing you at a starting line or in a training program soon.

All the best,
Josh and the Charm City Run Family

Along with Fells Point, Charm City Run has five other locations in Maryland.

Charm City Run is the sixth business to close at McHenry Row during the COVID-19 pandemic. It joins Rev Cycle Studio, World of Beer, The Urban Oyster, Hair Cuttery, and Fresh Cleaners.

NovaCare opened in recent weeks at McHenry Row. Massage Envy reduced the size of its retail space which made room for a new retail suite for NovaCare.

Several ‘for lease’ signs that were previously on the vacant storefronts at McHenry Row are no longer there. Jay Sapperstein of 28 Walker, which owns and managers McHenry Row, told “things are in the pipeline,” but nothing they can comment on yet.
