The Back Story
NB Retail Management, Inc. is headed by CEO and majority owner, John Strojny. Strojny sparked his passion
for the athletic footwear business as a cross country and track star at the University of Delaware.
He leads a team of inspired footwear professionals to provide their unique level of footwear knowledge,
expertise and customer service. His stores are staffed with runners, athletes, PROCARE foot-fit specialists,
and Certified Pedorthists. The staff has first hand knowledge, training and passion for Foot-Fit Excellence
that provides for a unique customer experience. Each store has a Certified Pedorthist
or Pedorthist in training on staff working with area podiatrists, physicians and physical therapists, our largest source
of referrals and repeat business.
After almost 2 decades of operating The Athlete’s Foot stores, John was approached to open one of the
first New Balance Stores. Since opening his first store, Strojny’s business has grown to encompass the
states of Delaware, Washington DC and Virginia. Future plans include additional stores in
each of those markets along with an even higher level of service and selection and customer experience.
Standing behind Foot-Fitness
NB Retail Management, Inc and its stores are committed to delivering maximum comfort, performance and energy
in every day activities for our customers. The precise shoe fit matters. "I am convinced that shoes are
not something one can casually order over the internet and likely achieve such perfection. It is clear
to me, and our team, that this is a one-on-one, uniquely individual matter that requires precision only
achieved in person, by experts. So you can count on us to continue to serve our customers exclusively
in our retail stores." John Strojny, CEO - NB Retail Management, Inc.
