The people have spoken and they have chosen Feet First Sports in Hickory Ridge Village Center as their favorite sporting goods store. Feet First ran away with our poll, taking 54 percent of the vote.
Feet First was founded in 1979 to serve the local running community's needs, according to their website. In 2008, the store moved to the Hickory Ridge Village Center where it doubled in size. Today it is a Columbia favorite for running shoes and apparel.
