Toronto's BlackToe Running celebrates expansion to midtown
After quitting their jobs in the corporate world, Mike and Maya Anderson turned a front porch epiphany into one of Toronto’s coolest running stores, opening the first BlackToe Running location at King and Bathurst in Toronto’s entertainment district. Mike and Maya always had the goal of opening a second store. The store opened with a soft launch in mid-April; BlackToe midtown hosted its first event at the new store on the weekend of May 14.
The grand opening celebration for the new store will take place on Thursday, May 28 and 29 from 11 a. The name, BlackToe Running, came from what Maya thought about Mike’s feet. Like many small businesses, initially, the impact of the pandemic was severe.
“We always wanted to open another location, we were just waiting for the right time,” says Maya. The new store will be similar to the first location, but with a modern midtown twist. Keep an eye on the BlackToe social pages, as the Andersons plan to host events all summer long at the new midtown location.
