Downtown store adopts new name
Downtown Danville business owner Ernst Crown-Weber has changed the name of his store to Danville Bike and Footwear to reflect his efforts to respond to customer demand for more supportive shoes. The transition at his downtown store includes a redesigned logo and a new free-standing sign.
Under its former name, Danville Bike and Fitness, the business has offered an array of athletic shoes, performance clothing, exercise equipment, bicycles and accessories since 1993. Referrals from physicians and foot-care specialists, along with customer requests, pointed the way to adding more shoe styles and brands, Crown-Weber said.
"People want their everyday shoes to give them the same level of comfort and support found in athletic shoes," says Crown-Weber. "It helps them perform better, regardless of what they're doing. We measure and fit each new bike, helmet, or pair of shoes to the individual."
